Making Poetry More Accessible with Katrina Naomi

Katrina Naomi is an award-winning poet who is here to improve the accessibility of poetry and show that poetry truly is for everyone.

Katrina is not your typical poet. She didn’t grow up reading poetry, because she found it inaccessible and difficult to relate to. Later in life, when Katrina was in her thirties, she saw poetry in a different light and began to create. Along the way, she remained a realist, finding that putting in the work was even more important than seeking inspiration. 

Katrina’s outlook is both bold and realistic. Her vulnerability and openness around doubt and rejection demystify the often-inaccessible world of poetry. She hopes that by sharing her journey, she can prove that poetry truly is for everyone.
