Promoting Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression and an End to Censorship.

Ship Street Poetry is all about making self-expression easier for everyone. That’s why we encourage contributions from artists, writers, photographers. We know that sometimes getting started is the hardest part, so we show how anyone can do it, whether a novice or an expert.

We’re interested in weird and wonderfully creative ideas to celebrate freedom of speech.

Let’s together celebrate and showcase the best poetry, photography, music and more from around the world, and delve into the messy, but magical creative process.

Diversity is at the centre of what we do. We want to tell stories across different communities – whether that’s age, race, geography, gender or sexuality. Put simply; more voices equals better ideas.

You mean you want to clone yourself! I would like to think of myself as a relatively intelligent person that has good reasoning skills BUT I cannot for the life of me understand the whole OMG I am offended Fad. Seriously what is there to be offended about? After not much thought I have come to

It’s true, I am an amateur!

If someone was to say that I am an amateur I would have to agree. After all, not only did I use my Galaxy Phone to take the photos for My Rabid Fucking Soul but I also had my grandson Jarrod take photos for the book as well.  He was 9 at the time. My
