I grew up in Sri Lanka and now live in Toronto Canada. I have been writing poetry and lyrics ever since I was 13 and I am still at it to this day. I play in a Rock/Metal band in Toronto called Draft and I also write things that might end up in a solo record of some sort one day.
Dr Dilantha Gunawardana is a molecular biologist who graduated from the University of Melbourne. He moonlights as a poet. His poems have been accepted/published in Forage, American Journal of Poetry, Kitaab, Eastlit and Ravens Perch. He mixes science with poetry for a living, when what matters is the expression of both DNA and words into something serendipitous. Although an Australian citizen, Dilantha is domiciled in Sri Lanka, his country of birth.
Life is all about perspective - You'll never be as famous as the fluffy cat with a slice of ham stuck on to her side!
I'm a Sri Lankan currently living in Kyiv, Ukraine. I love to write and draw, cook and eat :-). Having lived in Sri Lanka until 2015, my motivation to write often arises from my varied experiences and memories of home. This, along with my continual struggle to make sense of my chaotic mind and to cope with daily life, lured me to blog.
