“Stunning, brilliant… Gorgeous imagery, beautiful author of Perfectwriting… Truly becoming one of my favorite poets. Ever.”

– Ellen Hopkins, #1 New York Times bestselling 

I fell in love with the poetry of Samuel Peralta back in 2009, when he founded a unique literary project called Semaphore.

He joined me on WriteSpa’s BlogTalkRadio show on Thursday, April 24, at 6 PM EST. Very honored. 

In the early days of the social network Twitter, while others streamed status updates, Samuel Peralta was one of the first to stream original poetry as @Semaphore. The project became an online phenomenon, with over four million downloads of 300+ poems, acclaimed for their emotive impact and craftsmanship.
