Profile Information

Hello, my name is Denmark Delaney Harris. I am an avid reader and writer of fiction and non-fiction and various volumes of poetry. I first began to write during my childhood when my grade school teachers noticed that I had an extraordinary gift for the pen, they then contacted my parents who from then on out nurtured my skill into what it is today. Reading good quality books was always encouraged in the household as well as building your vocabulary through consistent practice. During adolescent years I had become familiarized with the written word but I still had not completely fallen in love until misfortune befell upon my life. I went through a period of melancholia, feeling worthless, someone who had no purpose in life, depression, angry with myself, family, and friends. I would later find myself peering out through cracks in the window in juvenile hall stemed by complications between my father and I. During my stay in juvenile hall, I was to write a poem about my experience, I enjoyed writing this poem so much that I slowly began to fall in love with writing them. For me, writing poetry was as if a sudden release of emotions, some positive, others negative, was being released onto paper and I felt as if the world was in my hands. That experience changed my entire perspective on the world, never take anything for granted, and more importantly, I realize my one true calling: "Write for thyself, write for others, write because you have to."
