There are two ways to publish your poems (or responses to other poets' poems) on Action Poetry. You can either introduce yourself via your Facebook account, or you can create a username directly on this site.

Action Poetry works the same way whether you use Facebook or not. The reason we introduced the Facebook Connect feature in September 2013 is to allow more sharing (which is, after all, what Action Poetry is all about). If you click the Facebook "Log In" button on the left, your Action Poetry account will be created with your Facebook name and picture, and you will be invited to fill out your Action Poetry profile with further information if you wish.

If you don't like Facebook, or prefer to keep your Facebook worlds and poetry worlds separate, please skip the Facebook log in and instead create a new username directly on this site by clicking "register" on the left. You will be asked to enter your name and email address, and will be invited to fill out your Action Poetry profile.

If you've published poetry here before and wish to hook up your new profile with your old poems, please create your account (either with Facebook or not) and send me an email at and I'll be happy to hook it up for you! You can also email me about any technical problems on the site.
