After experiencing these emotions, Alex’s main focus in writing has been to gain a better understanding of his own and other peoples emotions through his poetry. His work has been described as “good as” by his mate Rory. Since he started performing his poetry he has won a basket full of craft beers and placed 1st in the Slamalamadingdong slam poetry competition.
