Poetry, an art form as ancient as language itself, continues to evolve and thrive in our digital age. For poets looking to share their work and connect with a community, I want to showcase Advocate of Wordz’s WELLWORDeD.art. As an award-winning writer, performer, teacher, director, and producer with almost 20 years of experience across theater, film, television, and animation, Maldonado brings a wealth of expertise to this endeavor.
WELLWORDeD.art, a new poetic forum inspired by Erik Maldonado aka Advocate of Wordz’s extensive experience, offers a unique opportunity for poets in the digital age. By joining this community, you can enhance your skills, connect with like-minded individuals, and take a significant step towards getting your poetry published. Embrace this platform as your creative laboratory, and let your poetic journey flourish.
“What I love about WellWorded is that it takes it back to the late 90’s and early 2K when most interactive websites were forums before blogs became a thing. “George Torres
Understanding the Landscape
The poetry landscape is vast and varied. From traditional publishing to online forums, there are myriad avenues for poets to explore. Advocate’s work, which has been featured in outlets like the LA Times, PBS, and international film festivals, exemplifies the diverse opportunities available to poets today. He has driven digital initiatives for one of the legacy venues in NYC, paving the way for innovation.

Disclaimer, Erik is a friend and supporter of both DailySofrito and Capicu Culture for many years now so I may be a little biased as I actually am a fan of his work, so naturally I was excited to see him venture into creating a new platform for poets.
