An Otherworld

DIORAMA is an otherworld – a poetic salon of intimacy and vulnerability. We collect evocative poets, those who bring startling imagery, strong voice, and style in their sound.

We believe that poetry is an intimate art, bodily, and specific to its creator just as dance and singing are. When a poet discovers the sounds, rhythms, and cadences of their own voice, they bring a distinct magic between writer and listener.

Come be with us, a world where we dispose of the podium and stage, and interweave you in space. We are the hull of a ship, inside, the floor of the forest at night, the act of revealing. We are poetry, shape, sound.
