Daren Peary AKA (Biggy Attitood)

This is my poetry world and I would just like to say a few words about it.

I have lived in Hertfordshire all my life (nearly 50 years this November) and I am married with two children. I have had quite a few jobs including Hairdresser/Care Worker /Mental Health support worker/ Chef/Social Worker/ Youth Worker/ Education Support Worker/ Children with ASD and Disabilities.

I started sending Forward Poetry my poems way way back in the early days (90s) when they first started publishing Anthologies and found that they loved my poems and thus encouraged me to continue putting pen to paper.

During this time I found that the everyday stresses of life were getting on top of me and to deal with it, I found writing was the escape I needed. My poems have been published in local newspapers and magazines.

As time has gone by I still love to write down thoughts and ideas to make things easier to cope with. Friends and Family quite often ask me for words for cards etc. I love the use of words in music and literature and particular love to hear great rhymes and lyrics in songs. I have a real passion for Art and Creativity and feel that we need to keep on encouraging Artists and Performance in this world of doom and gloom and hopefully one day Poetry will back on the Agenda. I also hope that you all now can be part of my little world.

My latest project is to hold an event of performance of poetry and music and to complete a book of poems and to continue writing and making Art. If anyone would like to contribute to the cause please feel free to join me. I love the forward poetry social gathering and reading other poems.

My Favourite poem that I have written SO FAR is Hollie’s Flowers It’s about my daughter aged 4 at the time - says what it means - means what it says - means a lot to me- means a lot to her - I have an amazing daughter an took a picture of her in a field With flowers - it was a moment in time captured on film and in words.

Where does your inspiration come from?
I get a lot of Inspiration from day to day experiences and also listening to other Poets and performers.

What is your poetry style?
I would say that my style is using Humour and Rhyming verse but at times I veer off into my own style and just play around with words and visual ideas.

Do you have a favourite book/author?
I haven’t got a favourite author or book but I do love Bob Marley and some of his song lyrics.

Do you have any poetry ambitions left to fulfil?
I would really love to complete my own anthology or book of poems and have more performance /stand up gigs.
I would also love to have an exhibition style /gallery of my Art work with some poetry performance to coincide with the work.
I would also love to have an opportunity to write a film or play to finish things off.
I am not a great Writer but I do love to write.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
