Hi, my name’s Alex, and I'm the creator of Poems by Post.
Back in January 2018, I grew disillusioned with the working world in which I had found myself, and decided to pursue my passion for poetry. Armed with a typewriter, and a sign that read “Choose Your Subject, Pick Your Price, Get A Poem”, I chanced my luck and took to the streets.
Thousands of poems; various radio appearances; and a museum feature later, I am proud to say that I made it as a full-time poet!
And then 2020 happened…
When Coronavirus struck I watched on as fellow independent artists and small businesses had the rug ripped out from underneath their feet. Whilst big corporations were looked after, the poets and painters of this world were told to *re-train*.
I am proud to say that we are now actively creating opportunities for artists and small businesses everywhere, and helping get creative people back on their feet.
This platform is very much in it’s infancy, and I’m so excited for what the future holds. Our ideas are big, and our dreams even bigger, but having experienced the power of people, I know that together we can create a better future.
