Edward Scott, a disabled U.S. Army veteran now living in Viola, has released a new collection of poetry, “Cosmetic,” published by Jazzy Kitty Publishing in Newark. Released in September 2013, the collection contains 51 poems.
Scott says his nontraditional approach to poetry derives from the interaction of everyday experiences like conversations between people and everyday tasks like work, with his own branched-off thinking process and imagination.
“In an attempt to capture my silent mind's altered ego, my flashflood imagination would lay down on anything which I could write upon - napkins in restaurants, bills from creditors, my notepads in the most remote of places, and so on. On the whole, this is how my diamond in the rough evolved,” he says.
Scott has worked for the State of Delaware for 19 years. He holds a degree in journalism from Delaware State University in Dover.
