Ideas With Ink

Bio: A Canadian teenager, born in Toronto, Canada in 2000, has written this collection of poetry and prose over the course of last three years, and it has become the time capsule of his teenagehood.

At first, poetry was his refuge from high school, its challenges, and several unfortunate circumstances (including sever bulling for his race, sexuality and religion, as well as suffering a mental illness as a result, which he overcame and persevered.).

He uses his pseudonym Ideas With Ink as a shield, but also as a way to express his views and opinions. He is incredibly vivid in his imagination and word choices, which are drawn from his experiences and aspirations. He is not scared to experiment with forms and literary devices without thinking about any accepted writing norms, making his work interesting and provoking.

He draws his inspirations from his everyday experiences, his dreams, from his worries about who he is or who will become, his exploration of his future paths and the impact that he can make in this world. All the insecurities and hopes that any modern teenager has he channels into his poetry and creates beautiful work.

He is fluent in a few languages (English, French, Russian and Spanish) and comes from a multicultural upbringing (Russian and East-Indian), which helps him to have a new fresh perspective on everyday and historical events, feelings, and emotions. Passionate about human rights issues, including minority and queer rights and feminism, his honesty and sincerity can appeal to any reader.
