If you like social networking but find that the traditional platforms aren’t metaphysical enough for your taste, have I got an app for you. Actually, has Czech poet Lukas Sedlacek got an app for you. It’s called Poetizer, and it’s a social networking app where users can write and share—yes—poetry, as well as comment on the poetry other users create.
As someone who has participated in a number of poetry workshops, I don’t associate poetry feedback with relentless positivity (just me?) but Sedlacek says that the app is, in fact, a “safe space.”
I, for one, am looking forward to seeing how this nice-seeming app turns profoundly evil.
