CHASERS OF THE LIGHT
Poems from the Typewriter Series
A gorgeous collection of poems from internet phenomenon Tyler Knott Gregson: The epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane.
And he’s clearly struck a chord—each poem he posts immediately garners hundreds, often thousands, of Tumblr notes. With more than 220,000 Tumblr followers and 127,000 Instagram followers, Gregson, whose fans call him “The Ryan Gosling of Poetry,” is truly a poet of the digital age. He taps into readers’ romantic fantasies with his sensual, insightful, and beautifully worded poems, capturing the raw realities of the feelings we often can’t articulate:
One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott 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.
He fell in love.
Three years and almost one thousand poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the Typewriter Series: a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. Chasers of the Light features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work—poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.
Tyler Knott Gregson is a writer, photographer, and artist who lives in Helena, Montana. A graduate of the University of Montana’s Liberal Arts program, Tyler writes with a Whitman-esque appreciation of nature, life, and the miracles in the mundane.
