With loyal fans around the world and across the internet, Tyler Knott Gregson is part of a new generation of poets reinventing the art for the modern digital age. His use of social media engages readers and supports his creative process as a poet and photographer, resulting in his poetry books hitting bestseller lists, where the genre is rarely represented.
Tyler's third collection Wildly into the Dark: Typewriter Poems and the Rattlings of a Curious Mind includes a continuation of his popular Typewriter Series poems (featured in his first book, Chasers of the Light) as well as never-before-published images. 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.
