The American Aesthetic

The American Aesthetic is searching for poetry that will once again engage the general public’s interest; poetry that will seem more meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives—much as a good song, a good play, a good movie, a good book, or a good lecture or sermon might seem meaningful and relevant to their lives. Therefore, we have attempted to create a forum, platform, nexus to bring a certain caliber of poets together in one place.
