Our Dead World 2001
Interview with a poet

Each issue, one selected poet will be invited to answer a few questions about his/her work

Simon Johnson, London

A major source of some of my best ideas are dreams.

Do you write from personal experience?

Occasionally, yes, but most of my work comes from observation.

Who do you like to read?

I enjoy many of the beat writers - Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs. I take considerable influence from writers of this period.
