What we do and why

The moral, political and economic inconsistencies of the capitalist system, that many artists had already been denouncing over the last decades, had turned out to be of a substantial nature and extremely difficult to solve.

Poesía Indignada is a global publication and a digital amplifier for poetry of protest. We aim to add to the efforts of other platforms from a poetic perspective by sharing poems and translations of poems in different languages.  

Artistic indignation belongs to everyone and is naturally plural. In that spirit, we have chosen literary quality and the search for social justice and freedom, both at local and global levels, as the two criteria for publishing work.   

If you would like to be contribute to Poesía Indignada with work of quality that can inspire others to think and act critically, please send your poems to poemas.abiertos@gmail.com in a word document, indicating your name.

Given the multilingual nature of Poesía Indignada, there are different groups of people involved in the editorial and translation work.

Unless authors request it otherwise when sending their poems, the intellectual property rights relating to the poems will be protected by the Creative Commons Licence BY-NC-ND (Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs). This is the most restrictive of the main CC licenses, only allowing others to download the poems and share them with others as long as they credit the author, but poems can’t be changed or used commercially.  http://creativecommons.org/licenses/
