My name is John Roedel and I'm an improv comic who to everybody's surprise (including me) started writing poetry.

I have self-published two books in the past year: "Hey God. Hey John. : What Happens When God Writes Back" & "Any Given Someday: The Poetry Of What Comes Next."

I am a writer who has been influenced by the likes of Rainer Rilke, Phillip Kay, Iain S. Thomas and Mary Oliver. I believe in the power of vulnerability and authentic storytelling in all forms - whether that be through essays, lyrics or poetry.
