Janne Robinson is a 21st-century feminist beat poet. Her voice haunts with the legacy of early feminists and poets such as Gloria Steinem, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac. Her no sugar shit prose cuts with the honesty and simplicity of Bukowski and the romantic reliability of Kerouac. Her poetry leads like a woman, walking with fire in the footprints of Steinem—breathing sexual liberation, choice, and overall championing women to their birthright of not only equality but leadership.
Robinson notoriously states that her career is to “share slabs of her heart for a living." Her ability to capture the human experience with unrefined sincerity makes her an incredible force in the modern landscape of personal expression.
Her loyal following of enthusiasts on social media are there not only for her brutal honesty and lyrical grace but also for her lifestyle, which is a mirror of her devotion to joy and refusal to work to work to work to die. Robinson’s films and art shit on the societal "shoulds" and norms and encourage people to ‘build their own box’. She is an outrageous idealist and master at effortlessly marrying the life she wishes to live with her work, and this enrages and inspires many who believe they are trapped.
Robinson’s foray into directing and the multimedia world was in directing a spoken word poetry film in NYC involving 18 women reading the lines from her poem, “This Is For The Women Who Don’t Give a Fuck.” The film was a viral sensation online and was nominated for the 2016 Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards.
Janne is very much so crowning at the beginning of what is and will be a triumphant career, and she has begun so with the hearts of millions indebted and watching as it is rare to stumble upon a woman who makes revolution nature.
“Women like Janne are more than important, they are vital to the fabric of this society. She exudes strength and grace in a combination like few I’ve ever known and her words are reminders, often fierce, often gentle, to that deep well of power inside her. As long as she writes, I’ll read.”
— Tyler Knott Gregson
“In a consumer society we are starving for the real and authentic. Janne’s words nourish that craving. If that which is spoken from the heart is sacred, these poems are like prayers.”
— Dianne Whelan
“This world needs Janne. She is a force of nature. Her authenticity, drive and vulnerability are giving people permission everywhere to access their truth and their greatness. She is a new voice of consciousness and a breath of fresh air.”
— Kyle Cease
“When Janne has a new poem written, I shut my life down to do nothing but read it, and then when I turn my life back on, everything is better.”
