When I was in school, I used to write. I used to dance, act, sing, draw – I used to create! Yet as I grew older, these creative outlets fell away, and I was left feeling... empty.
I tried to fill that hole by gambling. For 8 years I was engulfed in a crippling addiction that could very well have destroyed my life.
But it didn’t…
Throughout that cycle I always held the belief that one day I would write something great that would save me. That within me was a story just waiting to be released!
In May 2017 I moved to Australia. I met the most wonderful girl. Her passion for painting and thirst for life inspired me to pursue my own dream of being a writer. Armed with only a typewriter I took to the streets, penning poems for anyone who would curiously approach me.
Thousands of poems, various radio appearances and a museum feature later, I am incredibly proud of where I am now.
Poetry saved my life.
Poems by Post will save the world.
Alex (Chief Executive Poet)
Alex takes outlandish ideas and brings them to life! He launched Poems by Post from a shed, and now pretty much lives in the office. He also rhymes... sometimes.
Reuben was wandering around Brighton when Alex found him. His patience and calmness bring a much needed steady hand to Poems by Post. Not a morning person.
Often hammered, Erika is the key to our success. They've been with Poems by Post from the start, and working with them is a delight!
