Biography

My name is Malik Peterson and I am an American writer living in Qatar.

I have been writing casually since the 7th grade, where I began to write short stories. Later on I got into poetry after reading Edgar Allan Poe’s, “The Raven”. I guess you could say I was sort of mesmerized by the way he put his words together in rhyme, and how he carried out the story.

I’ve always aspired to try my hand at a “raven” of my own but haven’t yet gotten around to it. Though he is my biggest poetic influence, I have been careful not to become a “Poe copy”. I have recently embarked on a more serious approach to writing, while attempting to develop my own style and set myself apart from others.

Thank you for allowing me access to your link. I look forward to checking back often.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
