Poetical Tv: Thank you, so what were the inspirations behind you wanting to get your work published?
Clairon: I believed that God's gift to me was to be shared with the rest of the world and a publication was the vehicle to take it there with the hope of inspiring someone. Also I wanted to expose my craft to the plethora of literary marketing possibilities with the hope of starting my own publishing.
Poetical Tv: And what was the feeling like, getting your first book published?
Clairon: Surreal! I couldn't believe my dream was coming to pass.
Poetical Tv: What other sort of dreams do you have in terms of your poetry?
Clairon: I am now giving new life to my poetry by converting them into songs. Singer/Songwriter.
Poetical Tv: What sort of songs?
Poetical Tv: So if you could write a song or poem with any artist or poet (dead or alive) who would it be & why?
Clairon: Michael Jackson. He writes and sing from a real pure place and I know he'll give life to my lyrics. Michael Boulton also.
Poetical Tv: Thank you very much. Last two questions, how do you see yourself evolving as a poet in the next decade or so?
Clairon: I will like to provide opportunities to aspiring young poets to learn and develop their craft. Giving back is evolving to me. Also create new ways of maximizing the benefits of my skills.
Poetical Tv: Indeed it is a great way to evolve. So, if people would like to contact you via the internet, how can they do so?
Clairon: Here on Twitter or the facebook page I gave you earlier. cuhcreations.blogspot.ca
Poetical Tv: Thank you very much for your time.
Clairon: You are welcome I really enjoy it and thanks very much!
