Naples, FL -- A gifted poet, author, speaker and graphic artist, Ruth Kuttler was inspired to write heartfelt and empowering poetry during a crisis in her life.

“Poetry transformed my life more than 12 years ago. In my poetry, I was compelled to let go of the status quo that kept me imprisoned in a life where I was miserable," says Ruth. "When I put pen to paper, ideas outside of my conscious awareness empowered me to listen to my heart and to live my dreams.”

Ruth felt compelled to share her poetry. Even those who said they “didn’t like poetry” had tears in their eyes as they heard Ruth’s uplifting heartfelt verses, expressing sentiments like “that was exactly what I needed to hear,” “You just told my story,” and one woman said “I have six of your poems on my refrigerator and I read them every day.”

Ruth came to realize that the word 'poetry' had a negative connotation among many people who told her she should call her work something else. This inspired her vision for rekindling a dying art through rebranding Poetry. This revolutionary movement will make people of all ages realize that they already Love Poetry – words in song lyrics, rap and greeting card verse that they feel deeply in their heart and soul, is poetry. It is poetry that inspires them, entertains them and in some cases, moves them to think and act differently.

Ruth sees this movement that she calls “Poetry for the People” a life changing opportunity for children and adults to access their highest and most creative mind - where possibilities emerge for turning dreams into action. This is for anyone who has a poem in their hearts.

Ruth says, “By defining a new genre of contemporary poetry that masses of people can relate to, poetry can become wildly popular once again.”
