10 Instagram Poets You Need To Follow Right Now

Poetry is one of humanity’s oldest and best art forms. It’s stuck around since the days of traveling bards and Greek philosophers, so it’s not at all strange that poetry has found a place in social media. Mainly, the poems that make it on Insta are of the shorter, free verse variety that’s popular today, as the format of the picture best supports that type of poem. If you’re looking for longer poems, then many of the poets featured here have books available or coming soon! These 10 Instagram poets are just what your feed needs for a bit of literary flair.
