TUNE Amazing Poetry - Paul Askew "The Crow"
Hello. My name’s Paul Askew. I’m a poet from Oxford. I’ve been writing bits and pieces for a while now, but only really started properly writing poetry this year.
My main influence has been Ivor Cutler. His poems, songs and scenes showed me a different way of writing and thinking about poetry, that it didn’t all have to be flowery ’smoke and mirrors’ hiding behind layers of impenetrable metaphor. It could be something you have fun with too.
