Meet the Artists
Instagram poetry has been credited with creating a new generation of poetry lovers – but this isn't just about a new platform for the artform. Instead, with its emphasis on brevity and focus on the visual, Instagram has encouraged writers to explore more unusual forms of concrete and visual poetry.
Join poets and artists Astra Papachristodoulou and Jinhao Xie, as they talk to Chris McCabe, co-editor of Instagram Poetry for Every Day, to unpick the idea of Instapoetry as a particularly emotional form, to celebrate Instagram instead as a platform for poets working in a huge variety of forms.
