Blake Auden (He/Him) | Socially Distanced

April 2021

 Brighton-based Blake's relationship with anxiety and mental health is well documented, both in interviews and throughout his poetry. His work provides a searingly honest and vivid description of living with these struggles, and he describes poetry as a 'theraputic tool' in dealing with his mental health. His current collection focuses on one fear in particular; that of being forgotten.

As a child, Blake always dreamed of being a writer, and it was in January 2019 that he first started sharing his poetry through Instagram. His willingness to be vulnerable and open in his work has seen him gain a massive following of close to 190,000 on Instagram. Having already self-published his first three poetry books, Blake now has a fourth book on the way later this year. 

Connect with creativity

Do you remember the last time?

The last time you painted, penned a poem, pretended to be an aeroplane! - did something you loved!?

Yet as you grew older, the passions that you once had took a backseat to life.

We believe that our passions should never take a backseat. We believe that the things that make us 'us' are the things that make life worth living - the things that make life fulfilling!

We're on a mission to make yesterday's dreams today's reality.

And we're starting with you. 

The Email Edition

Consisting of two carefully curated emails per month, our Email Edition is a treasure trove of inspiration.

A place where you can discover talented grassroots artists, be inspired by our poets dancing words, and a place where you can a creative community.

As part of our mission to make art accessible to everybody (because creativity inspires creativity!), we type up a few extra poems each month.

If you provide us with your address, you may wake up one morning to find a Poem by Post perched 'pon your doormat!

Oh, and we don't do anything weird with your data... No selling it, sharing it, or caressing it!

We just send you a dash of inspiration here, and a pinch of motivation there...
