Alan hard at work

Alan Reynolds, poet from North Carolina and now after a stay in England a long-time Netherlands resident:

'Writing poetry helps me see more clearly if not the reality of the world at least my own perceptions of it.'

Alan has written more than 2,000 poems. A number have been published in US and UK literary magazines, in books and on a CD. Many more have been posted, read and discussed on Internet social networks and poetry forums where the comments and interchange of ideas keeps him writing. The intense pleasure of wordplay, sounds and rhythms of good poetry is a delight he continues pursuing.
