I don’t know how many of you follow my Instagram account — or know I have one — but last night, I posted a poem on there that I’d love to share with all of you. I’d absolutely love it if all of you who follow me here would follow me there too. @comeandgoliterary is my account. If you’re a regular follower here, you’ll recognize most of my posts there.
However, there are some pictures, like this poem, that I don’t share here. I like to offer a behind-the-scenes look at what I’m working on and what I’m up to related to all things literary.
Without Instagram, you’d just see a simple poem (pretend that floating semi-colon is right after the s please!), but now there’s actually some aesthetic value to my work, which I like to think is pretty cool.
And yes, that is a poem I wrote with my own Royal Caravan manual typewriter. I picked it up in Lake George, NY from a small antique shop for less than $100. Aside from the comma key getting stuck occasionally, it works perfectly fine. I haven’t been using it much recently, but I’m going to try to get back into it more to spark some creativity!
Again, you can find more pictures and posts like this on my Instagram @comeandgoliterary. It would mean the world to me if you followed me. If you let me know who you are by commenting on any of my posts, I’ll be sure to follow you back.
The deadline to submit your work to the 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary is fast approaching! Be sure to see my submission guidelines for more details on what I’m looking for. There are no fees and no limits on genre, so don’t hesitate to submit!
