The most intimate and eclectic poetry collection yet from bestselling author and online sensation Tyler Knott Gregson

With loyal fans around the world and across the internet, Tyler Knott Gregson is reinventing poetry for a new generation, using Instagram and Tumblr to reach readers where they are.

Tyler’s third collection includes more of his popular Typewriter Series poems (featured in his first book, Chasers of the Light) as well as never-before-published scenes that paint the world as only Tyler sees and experiences it. Filled with vivid photographs and even more vivid emotions, Wildly Into the Dark is a must-have for longtime fans as well as newcomers to Tyler's unique brand of passionate, intimate, and playful words and images.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I don’t usually post on Saturdays but I wanted to tell you about this new volume of poetry by Tyler Knott Gregson. I loved his last book, All the Words are Yours that was full of beautiful and simple Haiku. This book is full poems, all written on a typewriter.

I love Gregson’s simple presentation and style in his book. Each poem is typewritten on different papers and each one somehow fits the feel of the poem. Instead of being written on the page, each poem is a picture on the page. It makes every page feel special; like a work of art.

This book is especially important because $1 from EVERY pre-ordered book will be going directly to To Write Love On Her Arms, a wonderful charity that presents hope for people struggling with addiction, depression, self-injury and thoughts of suicide while also investing directly into treatment and recovery. TWLOHA is an amazing organization! I strongly suggest you check it out.

Plus, the first 1,500 people who pre-order the book and send in their proof of purchase, will receive a free signed print! If the print is anything like the art in his books, it will be beautiful I’m sure.

If you read any of his books, I would love to hear what you think.
