Who is Atticus?

In a press release, Atria (Simon & Schuster) announced they will be releasing Atticus’s first collection of poetry. The book is currently titled, Love Her Wild a clever double entendre and will be released this summer.

The Poet

So who is he? It remains very much a mystery, the picture in his Instagram profile online shows a slim, young, guy in a mask, but the young writer who has captured the hearts and minds of hundreds of thousands of avid followers including superstars like Karlie Kloss, Alicia Keys, Shawn Mendes, and Shay Mitchell, remains a mystery.

With the advent of platforms like Tumblr and Instagram, we have seen a huge resurgence of poetry in the mainstream. And, with the massive success of poets like Rupi Kaur (38 weeks on the best sellers list), it’s no surprise why big publishing companies are taking notice.

We are excited for the release of his book and to see if Atticus can make the leap from online poet to the mainstream literary world!
