Why Instagram means that poetry is going from bad to verse

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/.

      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
