Hello, and Welcome

When I was nineteen years old, I knew that I wanted to spend my life writing poems and teaching poetry. A lifetime later, after working with MFA graduate students and K-12 students, speaking to audiences large and small at colleges, libraries, bookstores, and conventions from Atlanta to Portland, Oregon, from New Orleans to Madrid, Spain, I’m still writing poems and essays about poetry and poets, literature, politics, culture and family. My newest book of poems is The Long Road Home (forthcoming late March 2020 from Finishing Line Press), which can be pre-ordered November 25, 2019 to January 24, 2020.

    A new book! How wonderful! Marty, is that pic the drive leading up to Faulkner’s house or Flannery O’Connor’s home, or neither?

    Neither, Pam, just a cool image that I’m considering for the cover. I hope you and other old friends will pre-order (still a month away from that stage), which will influence how the book will do when it’s ready for it’s debut. Thanks for checking in! Happy Halloween, if you like that holiday!
