#TPQ5: MARTIN APPLEBY

Charles Bukowski

Love him or hate him, I would not have fallen in love with poetry without him.

Joseph Ridgwell

Joe is a poet and writer very much in the vein of Bukowski, but with his own unique blend of East London cosmic realism.

Jessie Lynn McMains

Punk. Poet. Zinester. Total badass. A modern day Patti Smith.

John D. Robinson

John shot straight into my top five favourite poets list after reading just a small sample of his work. A raw, guttural, and brutally honest poet and who tells it like he sees it.

Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen

Sophia was a Portuguese poet and writer. Her collection ‘Shores, Horizons, Voyages: Selected Poems’ is one of my favourites.


Martin Appleby is a poet, punk, vegetarian, cider drinking scumbag,
and editor of PAPER AND INK LITERARY ZINE.
