One of our priorities at Mad in America is to provide a forum for people with lived experience to tell their stories. Art is a powerful form for such truth-telling, as can be appreciated from the poems featured below. Click on the images below to read the poems.
We welcome submissions for consideration for this gallery of poetry or on our artwork or humor pages. Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, the name of the piece and, if you’d like, a link to a personal or professional website. Thank you.
