In regards to what I like to read, mostly its realistic, down and out story’s, for example the work of Charles Bukowski and John Fante. I also enjoy reading more surreal/experimental work of a similar tone, such as by William Burroughs. One of my other favourite authors, when it comes to short stories is Raymond Carver. In terms of poetry I love the work of Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath.
I mostly enjoy writing about Music, so I suppose you would call it ‘Music Journalism’. I write regularly on a blog about music, and aspire to develop this in some form or another. I also enjoy writing poetry, albeit, not very good poetry. In terms of fiction I enjoy writing surreal and funny stories.
