Step into a new ​Era of Poetry

DareToListen Poetry is a platform that brings you an entirely ​new outlook on the Poetry Community. Poetry doesn't stop ​at just open mics and showcases. Watch as we bring you ​performances by poets everywhere, poetry in cinematic form ​with both Poets and Actors, and now a Poetry Podcast ​dedicated to the artists behind the pen.

At DareToListen / DTL Poetry, our mission is to continue to ​create a safe space for all poets to share their voices. We ​open our platform to poets all over. We have a variety of ​featured poets and open mic signups, that venture from ​various cities to join our Poetic Vibez Events.

You can find our events held at Philly Create Studios.

Not Enough

Do you know what a rainbow baby is? What about the topic ​in itself being held in with shame, guilt and ​embarrassment? Do you wonder how the men feel, or is it ​considered too subjective?



Mental Health is one of the most valuable things. At times ​it is often ignored when it is not made a priority. It can lead ​to clouded judgement, false identities, anxiety, or worse. ​How often are you checked up on? Better yet... Are you ​okay?



There are uncomfortable conversations we tend to have ​behind closed doors, that no one talks about. If honesty ​was given in its most direct form, there would be more ​clarity than what people may think. How do you express ​your pain to someone for the same issue you have with one ​another? Are your perspectives different or the same? Or ​are things forever one sided?
