A LITTLE Long Story ABOUT OUR HISTORY

(History In the making)

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.

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?

Well, we did all these cool events and we sent hundred of mailed messages, but then the most incredible thing happened. can you guess what it was? That’s right, people just like you wanted to take advantage of the skills that we had developed over the years to help them with getting their heartfelt words out into the world by assisting them with getting their manuscripts and creative works ready for publication. This development was such an incredible discovery for us that we felt that it marked a true change in the direction that our project was going. Will we one day be publishers on a grand scale?
