Rhymer's Block: A Diverse Space for All Creatives

By Kennisha Crawford on February 5, 2018

Social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook are mega platforms that allow users to share whatever they want and receive love, hate and/or feedback on it. What I realized though, is that even though those platforms are major, they don’t have an “exclusive” space for aspiring writers, poets and rappers.

Besides being a creative writer, I also love writing poetry and have done so since I was about 11 years old. I always wanted to share my poetry with other fellow aspiring poets but never found a space where I felt completely comfortable to do so until I discovered an app called Rhymer’s Block.

Rhymer’s Block is an app that is used by a community of creative writers, poets and rappers from all around the world. What’s cool about Rhymer’s Block is how you can get constructive feedback from people who are also aspiring to be creative writers, poets or rappers. I think it can be extremely helpful for us writers to get critiques from our peers on our works. Also, the people in the Rhymer’s Block community are always very friendly and don’t hesitate to show your work love.

It’s also important for me to note that only IOS users can download Rhymer’s Block. The app is not yet available for Android users.

When you create an account on Rhymer’s Block (it is completely free to sign up), you instantly become a part of a diverse community overflowing with unique and creative voices. You can write about whatever you want without censoring your language, and if you rap, you can upload your tracks via Soundcloud for your peers to listen to.

There is endless inspiration on Rhymer’s Block that you can read or listen to if you’re having a moment where your creative juices aren’t flowing. I love reading other peers’ work and instantly feeling inspired by an idea or feeling that comes to me. You can also change the theme and font that best suits your writing as well.

I have been a member of Rhymer’s Block for a while now and my experience has been only positive. I share a lot of my poetry on there and have gotten a lot of love for my work. I have also received really good feedback that has helped me continue to evolve as an aspiring poet as well as become an overall better creative writer.

You can continue to share your creative works on Instagram and Facebook but I would highly recommend adding Rhymer’s Block to your social media sharing list as well. It truly is an awesomely diverse, unique and inspiration-filled space for all creatives.
