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.
In May of 2017 at Alixander Court sat at The Urban Flea Market with his Brother Echelon77 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.
A year went by, hundreds of quippies were mailed, and The Poem Pros were asked to attend events of all kinds. For a complete list of venues, check out our Events Page. Pretty soon people were begging us to get a social media presence going so that our fans could spread their heartfelt words online and to give us credit. And, that’s basically how you found us, right?
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. And gosh, we have written some words: love notes, inspiring quotes, intimate memories, hilarious memes, meaningful lyrics, birthday letters, wedding invites, thank you cards, and so much more. But what’s more amazing to us is that they sure have gone some places: Norway, Sweden, Germany, England, Scotland, Japan, New York, Georgia, Alaska, Los Angeles, Montana, and so many more places on this beautiful earth!
