Today’s submit-and-sell model of traditional publishing keeps poets in the dark and readers at a distance. The system is costly and stressful for serious poets and prioritizes editors’ decisions, not diverse tastes and total talent. Trubadour restores the focus back to writing and places poets and readers in control. Our share-and-connect, mobile platform grows audiences by enabling personal networks built on quality poems—and by applying both human and algorithmic curation for poem discovery.
