150 poems for strangers

As a typewriter poet, Connor brings her typewriter to events where she creates one-of-a-kind poems for strangers based of any word of their choosing. Each title is the word they chose. 

This book is a collection of 150 photos of these poems. Each photo is of the actual 5x7" card Connor then handed to the customer.

After reviewing each poem she had written, Connor discovered they all fit into four categories:

Life, Love, World, and Self.

When you pick up this book, you are not only reading poems written for strangers. You are exploring what is important to people and what is on the forefront of their minds, regardless of the many differences between them. We are all the same in the way we interact with poetry: curious and full of wonder.
