Pierre Alex Jeanty

Pierre Alex Jeanty is a Haitian-born poet who is turning the poetry world on its head. Releasing two volumes of poetry titled Her and Her 2 this year, Jeanty brings gripping depth to matters of the heart. By sharing his journey of loves lost that led to him ultimately finding and being able to completely love his wife, this poetry will make any woman reevaluate the way she’s seen through the eyes of her lovers – past and present. He has become a well-respected social media influencer by using multiple platforms to drop tasty morsels of poetic wisdom to his combined two million plus followers. Additionally, he has acquired a deal with Barnes & Noble to have his works on bookshelves internationally. As if that weren’t enough, Jeanty has raised the bar by recently launching Jeanius Publishing, a publishing company serving as a vehicle to help other poets tell their stories through the cadenced word.
