Technology may have its extreme highs and lows, but one thing we absolutely adore about it is how it has made many art forms accessible. Now, taking an entire library with you on something as slim as a Kindle is possible. Then there's also how it can help us discover many budding artists, novelists, and poets at a single tap. It's worth noting that people who can partially thank technology for their success are Instagram poets like Lang Leav.
Aside from winning many writing awards when she was still starting and her first book, Love & Misadventure, immediately gaining traction in its release in 2013, there's no doubt that her Instagram presence truly helped her career. Her relatable words dressed as poetry and prose captured more audiences on the platform. Furthermore, their shareability through social media made her a famed personality to those who already enjoy poetry and those who are just starting to like it. And now, whether it's on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, you will definitely find someone quoting her words, changing how we take art as we know it. With this, it's no wonder why many others followed suit, paving way for Instagram's growing poetry community.
So in celebration of International Poetry Day, here are other Instagram poets you need to check out if Lang Leav's words are your cup of tea.
