Hi! My name is Camilla. I write humorous, quirky, witty poems.
I'm shaking up the poetry world: high jacking it from its cave of soul exploring emotionality, spray painting it and injecting it with a double dose of "what in the world-ness?"
My poems have been likened to the work of Shel Silverstein. I take inspiration from Ogden Nash, New Yorker Cartoons and Rhoald Dahl - just to name a few.
I call myself a "New York Rthymes Best-selling Poet" - which actually makes no sense and doesn't mean anything.
My work is feather light, smirk inducing and a serious magic carpet ride from the ordinary. I strongly believe the word needs more creativity, playfulness and fun. My work exists solely for this reason.
I looking for poetic comrades and co-rhyming sidekicks.
Your support means I can create my outrageously creative poetry, which you don't find anywhere else in the world.
Another reason your support is truly meaningful? My work isn't supported by traditional publishing streams. Have you ever tried to pitch nonsensical poetry to a literary agent? Good Lord. You might as well send your pitch letter pre-crumpled (aka destined for the bin). Most agents won't touch it due to its inability to be translated.
That, however, won't stop me.
It's a exciting time over here in CC world, I've been developing my voice and perfecting my niche for the past few years and I'm now ready to take the next step.
There are so many things I want to do, three of the most important being:
1. Continue to matchmake poetry and creativity
2. Discover a way to bring it to life: drawing, animation, stop motion, etc (2018) and head towards self publishing (2019).
3. Redo my website (2019) which desperately needs a lift, nip and tuck.
As a potential poetic comrad you need to know one thing:
Right now I'm focusing on 3 types of poetry: nonsensical, inspirational and child-centric poems. Here are a couple examples of my work. You can find more on my blog www.camillacarron.com.
Your support carves possibility for my work to both exist and thrive.
So, I guess that just leaves two things to say:
shall we? :-)
