Introspective Collective is a poetry platform which holds illuminating pieces, encouraging words woven together with edification and authenticity. Inspirations are drawn from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mary Oliver and many modern-day dreamers; this site is for you. It's a collective of writers pulling lines of poetry and creatively writing their growth, revelations and renewing experiences.
We are the ones who thrive from creating, and will forever write our words to paper–we'd just like to share them with you, too. We hope that you find comfort webbed together through these words, creativity encompassing and the love poured into each poetic piece.

My name is Regan, and I wanted to thank you for being here, however you stumbled across these letters. I am a creative writer and poet living within the thriving city of Nashville, Tennessee alongside my sweet husband and min-pin mix. Ever since I was young, I was always looking inward, viewing life through an introspective lens. As I've grown older, I've documented this trait from every perspective and stitched it together through poetry. The words I've written have offered such raw self-realizations and revelation.
I also have a yearning to piece together other writers and creatives within our community and share their works, which led me to open up this site to become a true collective of individuals sharing their talents–an incredible gift.
I'm often drinking non-caffeinated herbal tea with a dollop of honey, going to bed before ten and waking to write and read before the sun rises into the day's fruition.
My debut poetry collection, Morning Air, Morning Light, is a poetry piece that I've been writing and editing and praying over for the past three years. It's currently available for preorder, releasing on September 5, 2018.
This platform exists because of readers like you, and due to the generosity of the beautiful words and words of our contributors and guest writers.
