Chuckie (Francis Raven) has been writing poems since he was little, which in the grand scheme of things isn't very long.  For him writing poetry has always been and will always be about healing and growing. Most of his poems are writings during what he calls the dark ages of his life.  He hopes to shed some light on those times.  Chuckie featured at Perth Poetry Club in 2014 and was a Perth Poetry Festival poet in 2015.
