Oliver Loch is a twenty-one-year-old writer, currently working on a BA Honours degree in Creative Writing. Originally from Cardiff in Wales, he moved away from home to Cheltenham in England for his degree. His university work keeps him busy, but he always has his own unique way of addressing different creative projects. Often his poetry is very much of a modernist perspective, panning to things such as: bowling alleys, laser tag and more recently fried chicken. Pretty much every piece he writes has his own sense of whimsical personality included within it. The poem in question “Starving Night” is an ekphrastic poem which took inspiration from painting “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh. It’s very much his own take as it has wonderfully beautiful references to various food items which work effectively. Oliver continues to work hard at his degree with many future publications to come.
