Mark Rowden portrait

2022 | Greece.

I’ve written poetry since my early teens. It’s involuntary. Poems arrive, and I write them down. When younger, I kept this activity a closely guarded secret. I often found myself writing poetry in the middle of other business activities, as though I was some sort of covert poet terrorist. It seemed inappropriate to reveal what was passing through my mind. As a designer (my former occupation), I believe one is given some latitude to dream. Such as in the same manner when graphic design and copywriting ideas would conveniently arrive inside my head, and usually before receiving the final brief. Every bit as though dreaming was (and remains) my way of solving complex communication problems.
