Yikes, these are getting a bit longer.
I’ve always been more at home writing longer pieces – I started out writing fiction and short stories before I even considered throwing serious work into poetry. Instagram definitely favors work that’s concise enough to fit within their medium, though – so I tend to post my shorter work more and leave my longer pieces to magazine and publication submissions.
I feel like I sound like myself more when I give myself room to work, though. Wish I could post these on Insta in a way that feels a bit less clunky.
