Marc Swan Publishes a New Poetry Collection
Sheila-Na-Gig Editions author and online contributor Marc Swan has published a new poetry collection titled all it would take with tall-lighthouse press in London. Someone smart and modest was asked to write the blurb: “Not read, but experienced, Marc Swan’s poems encourage us to see the world — its dangers and beauty — and to share our journeys with those we love.” The collection is wonderful, and Les Robinson creates beautiful books. Here is a link to Marc reading three poems from the book, including ordering information:
I co-founded the small press poetry magazine Sheila-Na-Gig in California in 1990. I ran the press for 10 years, producing 14 print copies of the journal. I now hold a Ph.D. in 20th Century American Literature from Ohio University and an MFA in poetry from the University of Washington. I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Ohio University Southern, where I teach courses in composition, American literature, and creative writing. My poetry, creative nonfiction, and critical essays have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The Brock Review, Proteus, Rattle, Spillway, and the critical anthologies, The Body in Medical Culture; On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs; and Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror.
