In-store Poetry Chapbook Launch: Robbie Q. Telfer

lonely line breaks: ChatRQT came about when Robbie Q. Telfer asked ChatGPT about his poetry, and it replied with entirely made up poem titles and synopses that Robbie Q. Telfer had not written. Telfer wants to defend ChatGPT’s integrity, so he has written some of the poems that it has said he has already written. Now ChatGPT is no longer a liar, but a prognosticator. This collection is proof that poetry is really very easy to write and all you need is a helpful robot to get you started. Welcome to the future of art! 

Robbie Q. Telfer has performed and taught in hundreds of places in nine different countries. His work appears in places like SEISMA, Connecticut River Review, cream city review, Sinking City Review, The New Territory, and many others. He's been an individual finalist at the National Poetry Slam and has a poetry collection from Write Bloody Publishing. He currently works for The Morton Arboretum and Friends of Illinois Nature Preserves trying to protect and celebrate what's left of our wild spaces.
