I am a Frenchman who lives in London (UK).
I believe poetry to be about musicality and rhythm, that it should engage our emotions and experiences through powerful and creative images. I have a preference for rhymes, although I can dabble in free verse as well.
I recently compiled and edited To Dads -with Love (GMGA Publishing, 2021), an anthology of poetry celebrating fathers and fatherhood, and in support of the UK charity Family Needs Fathers. To Dads -with Love also features an essay of mine about the importance of fathers, and addressing prejudicial attitudes against fatherhood, especially when it comes to parental alienation.
Back in 2019, I self-published A Vow - A Collection of Love Poems (re-edited by GMGA Publishing, 2020), my first poetry book in English. A Vow was born out of morning love notes I used to write for my then fiancée, now wife. These notes were later expanded as poems, and finally gathered as a collection. It features 'An Argument' (winner, 3rd place, Momaya Poetry Competition 2018), and poems previously published in anthologies (Poetry Review 2018: Love, Momaya Press, 2018; Scentsibility, GMGA Publishing, 2020) and various international publications (Writing Magazine, The Wild Word...).
I donate proceeds from A Vow to Happily Dating; a dating project based in London, and supporting people with learning disabilities finding love and friendship.
Besides writing, I love spending time with my wife and kids, reading a lot of stuff about a lot of stuff (you can find me on Goodreads), and listening to music (metal especially; you can find me on Rate Your Music). I also run Burning Words Poetry, a YouTube channel dedicated to poetry.
