Cassidy Swanson is a copywriter at BadCat Digital, an editor, and a freelance writer with experience in the fields of publishing, journalism, and digital marketing. As an aspiring novelist and occasional poet, you can almost always find her with her head buried deep in the pages of a thriller novel or scribbling notes on random scraps of paper. Cassidy relishes the rise of Instagram poetry, which she believes has helped revitalize the way people view poetry. She finds the connection fostered between reader and writer to be one of the most genuine and pure, which is why she believes so deeply in the mission of Lyricality. Poetry should be more inclusive and accessible. Individuals go through this world searching for a sense of belonging, and poetry is nothing if not a way to spark that magical feeling of being understood.
