A question for Tris Matthews

Q: What’s a genre you’d like to write, but don’t or can’t?

A: Poetry. I keep trying, and I’m not too bad at short, limericky things, but I’d love to write an epic (perhaps semi-epic) poem in a quite archaic style to tell a modern or futuristic story… Alas, my few attempts to date have ended quickly, as I slip into a very nursery rhyme like style.

About Tris Matthews

Tris Matthews lives in London with two ladies, one of whom is a beast. By day, he works in science fact publishing, while by night, or at least late evening, he masquerades as a science fiction writer, among other things. Upon arriving in London, he accidentally became an EFL English teacher, which sowed the seed and nurtured the tree of a love for language, particularly the pernickety bits. Now is nearing the end of his first year of ‘serious’ writing, in which he set the goal of writing one story in every genre—and failed.
