Welcome to the new home of Her Heart!
Over the last few months I have watched the Her Heart community grow and grow. I have read amazing work that has made me cry and laugh out loud. I have connected with the multiple voices of our global community and it has inspired me to launch a space for this work, the work of new voices in poetry, to be shared with the world. There are so many who are seeking to provoke and connect with their work and this is a creative space to do just that.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the launch of Her Heart Poetry – A Literary Magazine.
Her Heart will continue it’s base on Instagram and we welcome new members to the community. The magazine will run in tandem and we will publish successful works from the Highly Commended category of The Writers Corner here online and in the digital anthology, in addition to the Instagram community page.
As a proud member of the Community of Literary Magazine and Presses, publication in our ezine also means that you now have the opportunity to add publication credits to your portfolio. I am so pleased for those of you who are now ‘published poets’. I invite you to continue to contribute, to share your words and your success with others.
This magazine could not exist without the thousands of writers, poets and wordsmiths who have shown such passion for the art of poetry, to you all I say “thank you for being my Muse.”
I would also like to say a special thank you to Tannis Nohlgren ǀ @poetmama79 for her words of encouragement and keen proofreading skills over these last few weeks and to the artists Alex Lee ǀ @alexxforeveraghost and Monique Oliver ǀ @moniqueoliverart whose artistic collaborations have delivered such beautiful anthology covers.

We hope that you will subscribe and that you will continue to connect here and in the community. So take a look around and get comfortable. I truly do feel like I have found my place to be, I hope that you feel the same way.
From my heart, to yours.
