Damien Tillman has ideas and isn’t afraid to share them. He has questions and he isn't afraid to ask them! His first book, Learning To Quote Myself, is an invitation to a mind filled with infinite curiosities, intelligent observations, and a desire to connect with others honestly. While introducing original poetic styles and structures, Damien calls us to question what we think we know, reveal bittersweet truths, and reminds us of lessons we may have forgotten. With deep consideration, he dares to take his own truths seriously. He weaves his quotes throughout the book while making sure that you know "[he] can’t teach you anything, but [he] can tell you about the things [he’s] learned.” He never forces his words on you, rather, he shares who he is through his experiences and perspective, in an effort to entice you to do the same. Learning to Quote Myself is not just a book of poetry, it’s an expression of a deep relationship with and desire to better understand himself. All done to help him better understand others.
