A US population survey done in 2017 suggests that poetry reading in the country has increased by 5% from figures recorded in 2012. This is the first time in the last 20 years that the trend has seen a rise, and has been particularly observed amongst 18-24-year-olds. It has been suggested that this is due to the popularity of Instagram poetry, and to particular authors of the site who went on to publish poetry collections.
