Instagram is a great platform for people to discover singers, dancers, artists, writers and poets. The digital space allows a seamless flow for Internet users to continue this act of ‘discovering’ their new favorite somebody.
For me, Rupi Kaur has been a poetress personality I’ve religiously been following via Instagram. She’s continuously been able to inspire me or pull me out of moments of glum whenever a post from her pops up on my timeline.
I’d be selfish if I didn’t share her work with all of you in hopes she’ll inspire you too.
sharjah has been so fantastic. yesterday i read for a group of 14-15 year-old schoolgirls who had so many intelligent questions about how to nurture creativity and empower oneself to write. we learned from each other. later in the day- at AUS the readers were so delicate. but sharp. they filled me with gratitude. i usually don't get stumped when answering questions but yesterday was a diff story. when your readers force you to reflect and look inward is when the best conversations begin. tomorrow is the last event- a panel on poetry at the expo centre at 6:00 pm-7:00pm in the book forum. see you soon and thank you for your caring energy and warm hospitality sharjah ❤️🌻
