So how does a young man from Helena, Montana come to be almost every millennial’s poetry heartthrob? It began while browsing in an antique store when Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything.
Gregson just launched a new book Chasers of the Light which features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate miracles in the mundane and the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.
I asked Tyler Knott Gregson to spend some time with me on one of my GLAM4GOOD days. Gregson photographed my team empowering a group of young women and was inspired to write some moving poems to honor GLAM4GOOD. Check out more work from Tyler Knott Gregson. Help GLAM4GOOD spread his sensitive insights and beautiful words.
