Storytime for Grownups – Author Spotlight: Hans De Cuyper, author of ‘A Crow’s Cry (100 poems as a poet’s wink to the prismatic words we think)’

In cooperation with Waldorf Publishing, we are pleased to continue our Author Profiles series. The next author in the series is Hans De Cuyper, a poet from Belgium.


How did you get your start in the literary world? It all began back at a very young age as I always was fascinated with stories while I loved to play with the imagination as if words and language were my favorite toys. Poetry flowed soon thereafter from my hands to the paper as if it concerned a primary need that has finally manifested itself in a book like this one, a crow’s cry.

Can you tell us a little more about what you do?  I try to surround myself with as much positivity as possible, family and good friends as well as even music which helps me a lot to write like I do.

 What is your favorite part about being an author? I make my own hours as I write whenever I feel inspired. So, it’s a bit erratic as that’s what I love sometimes

 How do you get your inspiration? I get my inspiration from just about everything as that can be laughter, love or even a tear, as it can be music or silence itself.

And yes I have buckets of that inspiration most of the time.

 Of all the characters you’ve created, which one would you like to see come alive on the silver screen? Good Question! A poet for sure like he’s featured in one of my own favorite poems, overall satisfaction.

 What is the funniest thing to happen to you in your career? Nothing at all and that’s maybe quite funny and even a little weird in itself I guess

 Can you tell us a bit about your book?  It’s most of the time a man’s point of view on a wide variety of subjects in everyday life as that can be philosophical, mundain, playing with meters and rhyme to the Earth shattering experiences we all have in common as the people we are.

 What is your next big project? Another book of poetry of course, perhaps children’s book, maybe short stories as writing is really my passion, what I love to do most.

 Anything else you’d like to add? I would like to thank Waldorf Publishing as well as like to thank you for this interview regarding my poetry book, A Crow’s Cry(100 poems as a poet’s wink to the prismatic words we think)
