About the Author
Christo N is a poet/writer from The ACT who spent 6 years incarcerated in the Alexander Maconochie Centre.
During a lengthy stay in the local jail for reasons beyond my control I wrote approximately 400 poems about both my time on the inside and life in general. I also wrote poetry before jail and have continued to write since being released.
This blog will showcase the different eras of my work and the changes within me and my work throughout.
A lot of my poetry reflects the process of self development that only comes with years of introspection and hardship and I often say that life is a gift, make the most of it.
I use the metaphor of being lost at sea for the hard years doing time and feel incredibly blessed to be back to the safe harbor of freedom.
