History of The Poem Pros
We are asked all the time when our project started and why we do what we do. Here are the answers to when and why.
Founded out of a desire to get heartfelt words out into the world, The Poem Pros has become a grand experiment to directly impact poetry and love onto paper and spread it round the world.
In May of 2017 at Alixander Court sat at The Urban Flea Market with his Brother Echelon 77 Tabulator and typed his first quippy for the market of SLC, Utah. It was then that The Poem Pros was born! Not long after the first words were typed, Alixander was asked to mail them. Stoked by the idea, he invited others to make a donation to pay it forward and get their typewritten words delivered.
As years went by, hundreds of quippies have been mailed, and The Poem Pros has been asked to attend events of all kinds. Pretty soon people were begging us to get a website going so that our fans could spread their heartfelt words online and to give us credit.
