about this contributor:


DERRICK STUART is 16 years-old and currently (as he has his entire life) in the suburbs of Eastern Virginia (this is due to change once he can legally move to a locale more fitting- like NYC or California). Deeply effected by some prodigious roadtripping done in his early youth and a lifelong interest in the unusual, he began writing poetry at the age of 12. A constant theme in his work is the mixture of both low and highbrow allusions, concepts and references-no distinction made between the mystical, the intellectual and the mundane. Interests include travel, comparative religion & metaphysics, film, music, literature, art, politics, pop-culture, history, drama and all things mystical and absurd.
