To see Daniel’s Yale profile -

Obviously, Daniel has a lot ahead of him academically and creatively. He says that in a few years’ time he may be … “Teaching literature or creative writing at a university or high school, or working in education policy and politics”. 

We all need poetry, literature and art in our lives and Daniel is on a path to be in the next generation of notable poets providing a perspective on our times. We wish him well in his endeavour to create poetry that takes us “out of an ordinary way of looking/thinking about language.”
