· Poets appear out of the blue, with a shy phone call, a hesitating email, or with a friend calling to recommend them. They are the heart, blood and back bone of everything that is PoetSpeak.


· They are people foremost, and poets next; they have poetry in their souls and hearts.


· They often have been writing since childhood; some because they “had” to, some because it “helped” them, and others—simply for joy.


· PoetSpeak poets often have a sense of urgency that they have collected a rare insight that deserves a wider hearing.
