hi hi im steve roggenbuck!! im a 26 year old poet + video artist from rural michigan. my work explores (among other things) the new forms that poetry, humor, and spirituality might take on the internet. i've been covered by rolling stone, npr, the new yorker, the fader, the atlantic, know your meme, gawker, the guardian, and the ny times style mag. i recently started boost house, a publisher and residency in maine. i live vegan and drug free.
i've become known most for my videos; i recomend starting with one of these playlists: best of 2014, best of 2013, best of 2012, or best of 2011. i post a mix of other media on my tumblr blogs live my lief and lief+, as well as on my twitter, facebook, and instagram. occasionaly i use snapchat ("steveroggenbuck").
i self-publish all my writing into the public domain. so far i have two full-length poetry books, both of which you can buy in print here or download here. i also have two earlier e-books, which you can read here and here, as well as a collaborative e-book here.
i do about 50 live shows per year, a combination of DIY shows, university readings, and social media workshops for artists. you can see my upcoming dates here, watch live recordings here, or learn about booking me here.
you can (please) pledge a recurring donation to support my videos via patreon. you can also buy my books and shirts here. if you're able to book me at your university or something, please get in touch!
