Interview with David Belgrove

When did you first start writing?
It seems and often feels like forever ago. I was always interested in English as a subject. With regarding poetry, It was in my early twenties when paper got ink.
Where do you get your inspiration for your writing.
Poetry for me is around me everyday and in everything that we do. People share stories or introduce me to new music, different moods can contribute to my work and different situations. I might pluck one word from a song and build around that, any time and anywhere really can provide inspiration.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
A beginning, a middle and a really good last line. I really like infusing power into my work and it is very satisfying going back to a piece of work and it still evokes a reaction. The question itself is quite expansive, it just feels good to create something from nothing.
Describe your desk?
To be honest, I don't have a desk because I think as soon as you sit yourself at a desk you can lose all flow. Ideas, thoughts and creating something can take place anywhere so no desk but always a very hand notepad.
