Versify is part storytelling and part poetry. It begins by sending our team of poets out into neighborhoods and to community events, where we invite people to share a story from their life. The person they are sharing it to — the person listening — is one of our poets. This is where the magic comes in. The poet listens intently and then turns that life story into a poem, on the spot.

I can’t get enough of these poets

This podcast is so moving! Versify has changed my commute forever.. hearing people’s stories next to poems about them is such a unique concept that has given me a new appreciation for poetry.

Now I “get” poetry!

I have always had a love for words and yet have had a hard time understanding poetry. Versify leaps across this barrier with spoken word, back story and poems that regularly bring me to tears. This is poetry that even I can understand.
