About the Founder


The Poet’s List was founded in 2014 by Brooklyn native, Alexzenia Davis. Armed with a deep affection for the written and spoken word, Alexzenia decided to transform her personal passion into an inclusive platform; catering to poets and poetry lovers, alike.

Having written both creatively and professionally, Alexzenia’s work has been highlighted in various mediums including online, print and television. She is the author of two poetry books and her poetry video, “Make Me a Doorway,” successfully traveled the world on the film festival circuit. Upon promoting her work, she realized the limited number of sites dedicated to covering poetry. Alexzenia dreamed up The Poet’s List in an attempt to help fill the void.

Intended to be a one-stop shop, The Poet’s List features poetry-news, spoken word videos and interviews. Ever expanding, the brand’s community on Instagram has become an exciting place for writers to connect over shared truths and fun prompts. With each new feat, The Poet’s List works to fulfill a goal that Alexzenia considers near and dear to her heart; preserving the stories of today, while making the poet popular again!
