About Us

The Poetry Mail is both and online & print publication of RædLeaf Foundation for Poetry & Allied Arts, a not-for-profit, independent literary organization committed to promoting poetry and allied arts. The Poetry Mail is interested in publishing literary essays, interviews, book reviews, and poetry in both translated and original form. Also popular as RædLeaf Poetry-India, the older version of this site can be accessed here.

With greater focus on Indian poetry, the foundation was conceptualized in 2012 to facilitate a wider reach of the works of discerning poets in India and abroad. It then instituted the annual RL POETRY AWARDS that took place in 2013 and 2014 respectively. In 2016, the Award is open to submissions from around the world. Read guidelines here.
