#wikiHowPoetry

Authors Carol Guess & Daniela Olszewska found gold in wikiHow articles. Their forthcoming book of poetry, "How to Feel Confident with your Special Talents," marries wikiHow articles with lyric poetry and the results are both comedic and obscurely truthful.

Yesterday, Guess & Olszewska made a guest appearance at the wikiHaus! Their reading was streamed live on Youtube and live-tweeted. Jack Herrick, Founder and CEO of wikiHow, introduced the visiting authors (from Seattle and Chicago respectively):

A book about wikiHow-inspired poems was not one of those things I imagined about wikiHow when I started the company 9 years ago… I hope people who actually wrote some of these articles are listening so they can hear the poetry-version of their articles, and it should be a lot of fun for folks!

Guess kicked off with the reading, first explaining:

Thanks for making wikiHow, which is amazing. This book was inspired by how much we love wikiHow and how crazy some of the entries were. We got so excited about the titles that we started doing some poems with two titles together.

“How to Do the Cha Cha” was the perfect first poem, with the unforgettable line “Sexy bend, sexy bend!” Olszewska read her “most favorite” (because “they’re all [her] favorites”) “How to Reset Your Password,” which offered additional online tips:

When your email is hacked and a zombie spams your friends with ads for Canadian drugs, drive to Canada. Take advantage of low, low prices. Return with an accent and a drug-sniffing dog.

There are things you should never buy online: sedatives for cats, celebrity artifacts, lube. Never respond to IMs from profiles that use photo stock. Facebook requests from people over 3000 friends will not make you popular.

Other poems from the reading included: “How to Take Action when You Lose Sight of Your Child at an Amusement Park,” “How to Ignore Pain and Feelings,” “How to Re-gift a Present,” “How to Calculate the Value of Scrap Gold” (quoted above!),  and “How to Convince a Shy Person to be Your Valentine or How to Make a Heart Shaped Pumice Candle Holder.”

Olszewska concluded the reading with the title poem from the book “How to Feel Confident with Your Special Talents” (the authors’ wish list of articles for wikiHow), which wasn’t afraid to point out that:

Some people have no talent whatsoever, but their lack of talent makes other talents seem grander by comparison.

Thank you to Carol and Daniela for your heartfelt curation, for finding art in the voices of many. As always, a big thank you to the wikiHow community for working together with us in helping to make the world a more open, compassionate, and shared place.
