About Dunstan Carter

I’m a 40 year old writer, poet and illustrator based in Manchester, England. Years ago I had my work published in a range of magazines including – irk, Penumbra, Raindog, The Ugly Tree, Obsessed With Pipework, Square One, Beat Surreal and Never Bury Poetry. I don’t send stuff to magazines anymore though. Why bother? I post all my poetry on this blog instead.

My favourite poets include, William Carlos Williams, Vasko Popa, Miroslav Holub, Charles Bukowski, e e cummings, Dylan Thomas, Wilfred Owen, John Cooper Clarke, Charles Simic, Adrian Mitchell and Ted Hughes.

I’m currently fascinated by Moebius, Kurt Vonnegut, Captain Beefheart, Joe Sacco, country funk, Jim O’Rourke, Stanley Chow, Jurgen Klopp, brutalist architecture, woven trainers, Parliament / Funkadelic, Bill Sienkiewicz, Ron Swanson, crab spring rolls and bad tattoos.

As for my illustrations and portraits you can check out my work here.

Finally, I sometimes write and record music as part of The Abodes and Foilface – an occupied mind entertains the voices.
