Feel united as a community with the comical yet pretty spot on things we do as poets!

We’re Poets, Of Course We….

We’re Poets! And as a poet, you’re just as unique as your art! Of course, those differences are how we tend to define ourselves. Leaning into what makes us one of a kind is what artists do best and keeps our work as colorful as the world truly is.

Yet there are some traits you just can’t run from.

Sometimes we’re a little sensitive (ok…maybe, very sensitive). Other times we may be shy about our work and loud about our opinions. But every one of us is also capable of updating old perspectives, welcoming change, and making the world a little more glittery. Most importantly, we’re all capable of evoking familiar feelings within our audience and helping them to feel a little less alone in this big world. So, to help us feel a little less alone, let’s shine light on all of the beautiful, tough, and quirky traits we poets all share.
