15 Instagram Poetry Accounts To Follow For Inspiration

Instagram is great for many things. I personally use it to keep up with high school classmates I didn’t even talk to back when I saw them daily, and for a daily dose of influencer-induced FOMO. But social media can also be an incredible source of inspiration. If you’re suffering from writer’s block or simply eager to read more modern poetry, you can do that too. These Instagram poetry accounts will have you reaching for a pen (or Notes app) of your own.
