Author Biography

Ethan Burke

Ethan Burke is a Northern Irish person with autism. Through studying English with Creative Writing at Leeds Beckett University Ethan not only gained an increased appreciation for poetry, but likewise the possibilities that the form and structure of poems can be used to express, as much as just their contents. This exploration of more non-traditional styles and the ability to explore lateral thinking and association was the main draw to concrete poetry and other more experimental forms, allowing him to jump from concept to concept without any of the more traditional limitations found by other forms of poetic structure.
