Mina West (She/Her) | The Poetry Drug

June 2021

"My name is Mina West, and I’m a performance poet born and raised in London. The best way to describe my poetic style is vulnerable but raw and I like to focus on captivating an audience with the simple use of words, as Poetry has always been a personal form of release for me.

I recently released my debut poetry book (woohoo!), entitled 'Whisper: Words I Speak Privately'. The messages within the book are intended to encourage readers to go through their own self-discovery journey, pull out the inner voice we keep supressing and let it all out.

My favourite saying is “Tomorrow’s Never Promised” so each day I aim to give everything my best shot!"

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...
