Writer | Host of Archaeology of The Word
William decides that university is not for him. He decides instead to write.
His flash fiction story, ‘The Cold Wind’ is longlisted for the Flash500 prize.
William finishes the draft version of his first novel in the CX café, Bogotá.
A collection of poetry about his experiences in Italy in 2018 is printed.
Unsatisfied with his work, William creates Archaeology of The Word.
from ‘A Poem for a Departure’…
I am a fickle force contained,
With cramping limbs
Longing to stretch over the rock face,
And I am worse yet:
A light, mercurial spirit
Shaking in the face of life
And drifting in dreamt seas,
Living falsehood and fancy.
“Hailing from England, William Cooke is a Poet, Essayist, and Storyteller…
He retains a profound interest in Modern and Classical tales, including Mythology.
His highest purpose is to raise the profile of Mythological thought in our spiritually hungry world via recounting the secrets from his many adventures and misadventures.
Influenced by Jungian Psychology and Existential Philosophy, his main aims are to explore the eternal human experience and bring it into order. This project is a life’s work and is channelled through his writings.
He is the author of published articles, research, longlisted flash fiction, film, and two short books. He is currently working on a book of travel essays and a second poetry collection. As well as creating relationships with other writers to guide them in unlocking their audiences.”
