What is an everyday poet? Part I

Everyday life deserves description, and putting artful words together to share your experience with others can make you a poet. I chose the name everyday poet for this site because of my belief that everyone has the potential to be an everyday poet.

It’s doesn’t matter how ordinary your life is or how little you know about language, literature and rhyming. You have the ability to make extraordinary combinations of words and dub it poetry.

At its core, poetry is not about producing the world’s best poem that the most people love and understand. It’s a practice that feels natural for some, takes work for others but is possible for all.

Your poems may not be carried through the ages or read at commencement ceremonies, but they can still be treasures.
