An interesting article in The Times, which is, on the whole not very complimentary about Instapoets (I.E. those poets who post on Instagram), https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/why-instagram-means-poetry-is-going-from-bad-to-verse-d25rc9h3s.
The article ends with a list of the 10 leading poets on Instagram.
I do (occasionally) post some of my poetry on Instagram and you can find my page here, https://www.instagram.com/kmorrispoet/.

This is interesting, Kevin. I have never posted any poetry to Instagram. It would have to be a short poem, a haiku or tanka or limerick, I think.
Thanks, Robbie. I agree that short poems work best on Instagram. Best, Kevin
Hi Kevin, I post many of my poem on Instagram, as another outlet for my works….
Hi Ivor. Thanks for the information. To my mind any outlet (including Instagram), that assists in bringing poetry to a wider audience is a good thing. This is why I (like you) use a variety of means for publicising my work: Twitter, this website, my books and, of course Instagram. Good luck with your Instagram and, of course with your work as a whole! Kevin
Thank you Kevin, and I Twitter aa well, but I find it confusing site to use. 😊😉
Yes, I also sometimes find Twitter rather confusing as well.
Wow… so I’m not the only one !!
