John Lopes

Based in Toronto, Canada John Lopes is the son of a first generation immigrant family hailing from Portugal.

John began writing as a tool of exploration and as a means to overcome clinical depression, he hopes to provide his readers with approachable and relatable poetry.

He is a self-taught writer who began his education when he discovered Pablo Neruda who remains a major influence in his work, he has since then expanded his theme explorations to the bohemian Beatnik generation and modern North American poets such as Anis Mojgani, Derrick Brown and Sam Sax.

His first book titled CLOCKWORK, is now available through online retailers and PAPERFIELDS PRESS
