Kim van Breda

Biography

Reading and writing poetry are my life passions. I enjoy contemporary reads, and lean toward the abstract in my own writing. I have published 17 collections of poetry, and now busy working on my 18th. Besides these one biography and then this book. I have a number of books published at some of the well-known online retail sites that publish print books and e-books. Presently I am in the process of publishing e-book versions of existing books as well as new ones, in various formats, as required by different publishing, marketing and distributors of e-books.

Besides the above, I also write poems and interact with a number of authors on various poetry sites.

Trailer of Brevity
A Collection of Poems - By Kim van Breda “Saying as much as possible in as few words as possible.” From the Latin word “BREVIS”, meaning brief. The inspiration for the title of this collection of poetry, has been influenced by the observation that a lot more poets are using this style of writing to express powerful messages. I call them “power punch” writes. It is a liberating way of expressing creativity through fleeting thoughts and words.
