Hello, and Welcome

The Long Road Home is available now from Amazon or directly from the publisher, Finishing Line Press. Watch my recent Tusculum University (TN) poetry reading on YouTube.

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 & poets, literature, politics, culture & family.

If you’d like to learn a little more about me and my work, click on the link to the IsAnything podcast and listen to an interview with me by host Jeremy Uriz.

    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!
