Last Monday in our segment NP Recommends we gave you some of our newest Fiction Novels and we received an amazing response from our readers. So this week to support the growing community of indie authors let’s look at some really good poetry. Did you know that Poetry is one of the most widely-read genres around the world? Who would’ve imagined! Over 3.5 million people read poetry every day on Instagram alone.
Poetry might seem like just words on paper. But in reality, it is everything and nothing. Poetry is essentially whatever you want it to be – mysterious, fun, nostalgic, romantic, philosophical – the list is endless. They say there’s a poem for every type of reader.
With transcending platforms and constantly evolving media, poetry has taken a limitless number of forms. And of course, India is producing more poets than ever before. Poems are taking so many new avatars with a large growing community of indie poets who don’t conform to traditional norms.
In this large universe of indie poetry, we found some hidden gems. This week, in NP Recommends, we give you:
