Why write poetry, Poet?

I write poetry because I like putting my inner thoughts down on paper. I think of something and write about it - usually in verse. I really enjoy writing and it is very calming.

I enjoy sharing my poetry with others. No matter if it is good or bad, but it has come from me.

How did you get started writing poetry?

It is very strange how I found out I could write. My father died in February 2006 and I was so sad. I sat one day and wrote down my thoughts, as I was missing him so much. It turned into a poem. I thought to myself, "Surely I did not write this", but I had.

I decided that if I could write about my dad, I may be able to write some other stuff, so I did, now I write poetry whenever I have the time .

Who are your influences?

I had no influences - just my father's death

Who are the Scots?

Sir William Fettes (1750 - 1836) Merchant and philanthropist, who made his fortune from tea and wine. Left money to establish Fettes College (1870), which was designed by David Bryce. The College was intended for the education of poor and orphaned children, but is now one of Scotland's top private schools, although it still retains a tradition of scholarships for poorer children.
