So this is me and my beloved friend and poetry partner @_ella.mitchell_
. We are @_fourlines_
- a poetry collaboration and commitment between two friends to rescue their friendship. Below is a little description about us by Ella. We will be doing our first insta live tonight at 8.30pm AEST. We will share our poems and have a chat. Love to have you join us.
Hello! This is us, Mitch & Mim!
For new followers or those who don’t know our story, we became fast friends when we met at Uni and despite living in different states, o/s and living quite different lives we’ve remained close for two decades.
In 2014/15 we hit a seriously rocky patch and stopped communication for some time. It was really tough. We both thought the friendship may have run its course, but then something amazing happened... We started to send each other a few lines of poetry and song lyrics, randomly and without context. Words we loved and we thought might move the other. We did this for a few months with next to no other correspondence. One day we challenged each other to start writing and sharing our own original words as poems. And so @_fourlines_
was born. “It became hard to speak and so was born fourlines a week”. Our practice has led to other exciting projects including Mim’s monthly @poeticabondi
events and our random acts of poetry public giveaways.
Other things you might like to know about us is that we both write professionally. We love storytelling in film and music (Mim has a great voice) and I am also a photographer. We love to travel and laugh. We love star gazing and we wonder about a lot of things. We can talk for hours without the conversation ever really ending. If you have any questions for us - leave them below! 💌
