3 years ago I quit my job & started writing poems for strangers in public parks. I've written ~10,000 poems. This past year I started staging "interventions" with the pick-up artists who were running rampant in the park. Ask me anything!
Hellooo. So, for the past ~3 years (I started March 2017) I've been living entirely off of writing poems.
I sit out with a table and a sign, usually in Washington Square Park in NYC, and I write poems for every person that asks for one. Usually people give me money! Sometimes they don't!
You can check out my instagram to see photos and poems. You can also google me (Peter Chinman) for some interviews.
Last year I began to notice how many pick-up artists were in the park. There so many of them who were there almost every day, spending hours targeting women. I started calling them out, and then staging "interventions" when they would make approaches. I've had a few testy run-ins with some of the "dating coaches" who lead pick-up artist classes. I've been threatened (and attempted to be seduced). But the interventions work! The pick-up artists started avoiding the section of the park I was in and would complain about me in their private telegram chat.
