Hi, I'm Connor
I have not always been fascinated by, or truly appreciated the beauty of poetry. I never comprehended Shakespeare in high school. I never majored in poetry... or anything at all. And I could not stand writing papers for classes. But I have always written
I wrote song lyrics as a kid, as a teenager, as a young adult as well. Because of my neglect to join a band or learn how to play any instrument at all, my 'style' had to take on a new form. I loved to write but my story telling skills are lacking to say the least, and without music to put my 'lyrics' to, my words always felt misplaced; almost like they were floating aimlessly.
In 2013 I was introduced to spoken word poetry and was instantly inspired by all mediums of poetry. Some of my favorite written poets include Edgar Allen Poe, Mary Oliver, and Shel Silverstein. Some of my favorite spoken word poets are George Watsky, Sarah Kay, and Shane Koyczan. If you are reading this (I hope someone is) and you haven't heard of any of these artists I strongly encourage you to give them a look.
Anyway, that's just a little about me and writing. I hope you enjoy the content. Stay cool, everyone.
