About The PeskyPoet

Who Is The Pesky Poet?

As for the PeskyPoet himself… He was born in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. Lived a varied life between farms and cities. Then settled in the flatlands of the East Coast of Scotland.

What Motivated The Pesky Poet?
In the beginning of writing the motivation was a dyslexia identification. While at academy he had phrases attached to him such as “Just a little slow” and “Not able to read as quick as the others” but the school decided to state that it definitely was not dyslexia. Then, upon joining university tests were done and confirmed a discovery of dyslexia. That is when the PeskyPoet was told that: dyslexic people do not write and there was no chance of being a writer.

After a little self loathing the PeskyPoet started his first project in the form of a group sci-fi novel before taking up online poetry. Since then the drive to prove that dyslexia is not a diagnoses and some kind of terminal illness has been the main motivation to keep writing.

What Inspiration Does The Pesky Poet Use?
