She's studying for an MFA in poetry. She loves poetry—both reading it and writing it.
One of her favourite things to do is to have coffee with friends and swap recommendations of poets to read. Based on who her friends already like, she can sometimes suggest a great new poet.
One day, she discovers the Poet Tips website. She searches for poets she likes, votes on existing recommendations, and adds new suggestions to the list.
Anna has made the poetry world a little bit easier to navigate.
She encourages her friends to check it out, and share their tips, because she knows that the more people use the site, the better it gets.

One day, Sam finds Poet Tips.
He reads poems by recommended poets, finds books in his local library, and shares his discoveries online.
For Anna, Poet Tips is like Wikipedia* for poetry, allowing her to contribute her knowledge to the greater good.
For Sam, Poet Tips is like Pandora* or Spotify* for poetry, letting him make new discoveries based on his taste.
