Did you know, there are many ways to submit your poems to us? Keira Aro used Skype to send us het latest poem: Unspoken Stories.
About Unspoken Stories
Keira told us the following about this beautiful poem:
A poem about the way people convey emotions with their eyes, without ever saying a single word. It’s about the way we fail in trying to hide what’s horrible on the inside. Saying “I love you” through a moment of eyes meeting each other. I’m fascinated by the language eyes use to speak through nonverbal communication.
By Keira Aro
Oh how they convey stories never spoken into coarse whispers of desires that always hide from the light of speaking them quietly into…
Depths of reality
Can’t you hear their screams being drowned in pools
That’ll never fall upon the waking world?
Some so empty…
As if I could imagine not a single moment lost
To an introspective thought of this
And, to the passion of something you’ll need to know of, just by seeing a hinting spark
Why is knowing given to a single acceptance in silence?
Look into mine…
Tell of the sights you see residing inside of me
Share what I’m hiding…
In the behind of the below and above my eyelids
As all eyes tell stories…
Share with me, a prolonged staring…
So that we might speak without talking
Many people ask us on daily basis if we could feature their work. That is what we are here for, but there are a few ways to do this.
The most used options for poets to get in touch with us is by using Instagram Direct (a DM on Instagram that is). Everyday we receive many forms of feedback and there are many requests for us to publish the poems in our online magazine (our website). Of course you can find us on Instagram: Ministry of Poetic Affairs.
Many of our followers use Instagram to publish their work. Some of them have changed their Instagram profile so, that they can connect to their Facebook page. Facebook, that’s were we are also to find. So, it goes without saying that Facebook Messenger is another used option to communicate with us.

One of the competators of Whatsapp is Telegram. You can contact us using this app or website on your computer. You can find us with the name ministryofpoeticaffairs.
Even more requests for poems that people want to get featured are send the old fashioned way; using e-mail. We offer the chance to submit using a web form on our website. You can find this at https://submit.ministryofpoeticaffairs.org.
We also receive some requests using Skype. We will use this medium in the near future to record interviews!
