Matheus Linhares Guedin (grade 9)

My name is Matheus Linhares Guedin, and I am a freshman. When I’m not in school, I spend my time playing various instruments, watching movies, going out with friends, and working out.

what artists and/or writers inspired or influenced your work?

It’s difficult to pinpoint a singular artist that inspired my work, I would say Eddie Vedder, Robert Frost, Robert Plant, and James Hetfield were all major inspirations and motivations for my writing.

do you write sporadically or regularly?

I would say I write more sporadically than regularly. Sometimes I just feel the need to write something down, or I’m just bored and have nothing to do and write a quick poem.

what was the most difficult part of your writing process for this work?

The most difficult part of the writing process was thinking of what to write about, and after that really just how to word my thoughts.
