INKSOUNDS is an experimental interdisciplinary art collective merging poetry and music founded in 2021.

With an online gallery featuring original compositions by our in-house musicians in collaboration with selected poets from across the world, and a poetry journal pushing the boundaries of language, INKSOUNDS provides fresh takes.

Our poets have been National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship recipients, Best of the Net Finalists, Fulbright Fellows in Poetry, teenagers, Ph.D. candidates, grandmothers, immigrants, and others. For us, art fundamentally requires a diversity of backgrounds and experiences.
