Instagrammers-in-Residence: Poets & Writers

Instagrammers-in-Residence: Poets & Writers

The @actualpants Instagram account has been doing great thanks to the wonderful, mind-blowing, and talented people and organizations that have decided to participate in it. I was already on cloud 82739—I didn’t think I could feel happier about it. Well, imagine my joy when Poets & Writers agreed to take over for a week. I’m talking Happiness Level: Tacos and Unicorns. Poets & Writers has been an integral part of the literary community for decades, and it was such an honor to be able to look into their day-to-day. I’ll let their pictures do the rest of the talking. Enjoy!

At Poets & Writers’ we believe that literature is vital to sustaining a vibrant culture, so we focus on nurturing literature’s source: creative writers. P&W was founded in 1970 and is the nation’s largest non-profit serving creative writers. Our mission is to foster the professional development of poets and writers, to promote communication throughout the literary community, and to help create an environment in which literature can be appreciated by the widest possible public. We accomplish this through Poets & Writers Magazine, an award-winning bimonthly publication; pw.org, a website that provides trustworthy advice, information, and a lively online community for writers; Readings & Workshops, which pays writers fees for giving readings and leading workshops; Poets & Writers Live, a new series of live events; and awards for writers including the $50,000 Jackson Poetry Prize, the Maureen Egen Writers Exchange Award, and the Amy Award.
