and I'm hoping someone might help me out. I'm looking to put a youtube channel where I read submitted poetry. My concern is that someone might submit a piece which isn't theirs, and I'm wondering if I could face legal repercussions if I read it online. If anyone has a background in this arena some assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You won't face legal repercussions. At worst you will get a community strike and be demonetised—and that's only if someone gave a shit enough to flag the video, which I doubt because no one gives a fuck about poetry. In reality all that will happen is that the person who submitted the poem "might" get a telling off for plagiarism. Not you.
