Darius Nease

Darius started writing poetry, and only poetry, in junior high. Disliking the work of many poets he studied in English class all through high school (ee cummings being one notable exception) he strove to innovate in a art form that he viewed as having been stagnant for far too long and experimented often with poetic form. After high school he began writing stage and screen plays, but continues to write poetry and is aiming to double Emily Dickinson's feat of having penned over a thousand worthy pieces during her life. Very recently, he has endeavored to write more prose and experimental also describes his writing style for the piece submitted for this contest. More works of prose and drama are in the works as well as a "mid-life memoir", mainly about growing up cross-culturally in the Philippines but reading like a veritable adventure novel. A true novel is gelling in his mind at the moment and work will begin when the aforementioned projects have been cleared off his desk somewhat. He sincerely hopes his submission will entertain you and thanks you for taking the time to read his work.
