Hi, my name is Matthew Briggs. I’m 30 and currently living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

I have a degree in journalism and my interests (other than writing) include reading, history, philosophy, music, politics and current affairs, travel and coffee.

My writing is particularly influenced by Pablo Neruda, Federico Garcia Lorca, Jack Kerouac, James Joyce and Friederich Nietzsche (he is an amazing prose stylist), although I enjoy reading widely across both fiction and non-fiction

Presently, I am working on my first full-length collection of poetry.
