Poet Introduction

Before and during my studies in creative writing I was fascinated by the development of the sonnet. This form, which I remain fixated by, uses the power of rhyme and iambic pentameter, when well structured, to express a story in a mere fourteen lines.

Favorite Poets/Writers

Wyatt, Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Poe, Hopkins, Dickinson, Pound, Bukowski

About Me

Read Full
I have vocational (incomplete), professional, and postgraduate training, but have ended up dependent on welfare and living in supported accommodation due to the ravages of a severe mental health impairment coupled with a poor development of social skills. At a late stage in life I need to return to the drawing board, but am uncertain how to begin effacing and replacing the ingrained aspects of a personality which would be the envy of few. I am praised by some of my family for having the courage to try to start dealing with some of these issues and have remained out of a hospital setting for the last year, having successfully tackled substance abuse.
