The mission of boats against the current is to create a safe space where poets can gather to celebrate vulnerable and beautiful words. The editors provide an inclusive environment where poets from all backgrounds can share their work.
Tips From the Editor
we welcome poetry about any topic. content about art, nature, introspection, loss, relationships (including friendships), healing, the universe, grief, and vulnerability is particularly welcome. work that portrays the experiences and voices of historically underrepresented individuals is encouraged. content that includes anything racist, homophobic, or sexist will not be accepted for publication.
