Ten Poets to Follow on Instagram


Many people are under the misconception that Instagram is all about perfectly edited pictures and pretentious selfies. But there is a whole lot of gem hidden in the form of poetry which is waiting to be unraveled. Many might think that short poetry is very easy to compose, whereas it is just the opposite. Short poetry requires the poet to punch in a lot of feel and emotion within a limited space, hence the job is very difficult. If you have got an eye for poetry, then you need to follow some of the best ports that Instagram has to offer. We have listed them down below. Have a look:

  1. Atticus poetry, @atticuspoetry: This one is so inspirational in nature that many people have often chosen to get the tattoos of these lines. The best of his poetry is the short ones, mostly of one or two lines.
  2. Tyler Knott Gregson, @tylerknott: This poet is based in Montana and has risen to popularity mainly for the Typewriter Series. His Instagram account contains handwritten poetry along with photography as well as pieced from the Typewriter Series.
