If you asked me who my favourite poets were, Tyler Knott Gregson would definitely be in the top three. This guy is absolutely magical. And i’m sure you’ve seen his work on Tumblr and on various celebrities Instagrams. His work is thought provoking and hits you straight in the feels.
He does type writer poetry and it’s a fun take on poetry. He really has revitalized the image of what people assume poetry is. And he is such a great vibe too. Super friendly, and incredibly passionate about a variety of work. I’ve written about his previous books here.
I’ve worked with Tyler in the past on a few projects for a non-profit I volunteer with and i can honestly say he’s one of the most genuine artists I’ve ever met. He devotes his time and dives right into projects he honestly cares about. And the ideas he brings to the table are often nothing short of brilliant. I don’t think I can say one negative thing about the man and I don’t even know him all that well.
You can follow him @tylerknott on various social media channels and he also has a wedding photography company as well! If you haven’t bought one of his books or somehow oblivious to his rounds made on Tumblr, Instagram, & the like, check his stuff out. His books are found anywhere books are sold and I promise you won’t regret it. His words will move you not unlike mountains do.
Favourite line: All I could think to say was that poetry is taking an ache and making it sing
