"CHAPTER ONE" RELEASES FIRST BOOK!



From today’s issue of Critical Notes: The Latest News and Reviews From National Book Critics Circle Members:
Sandy McIntosh, an NBCC member and the publisher of Marsh Hawk Press, announced the publication of Where Did Poetry Come From by Geoffrey O’Brien, the first volume in Marsh Hawk’s series of books tied to its Chapter One: On Becoming a Poet project. The project features the memoirs of outstanding poets from diverse backgrounds, recalling the ways by which they found their start as writers. While creative writing programs seek to develop the talents of maturing writers, recondite but essential information about the development of the writing craft will be discovered in the early memoirs—the Chapter Ones—of established poets published in this series. Each month, the press publishes an original essay, eventually to be collected in an anthology.

THE POETRY SHED REVIEWS Mary Mackey


Congratulations to Mary Mackey for the new review of her book The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams! You can see the review HERE, but here's an excerpt:
"One can’t help but be impressed by Mackey’s dynamic range, the fluidity of her lines, and the strength of her convictions. If these poems hadn’t already been written, they would be waiting for someone to write them down, not only for us to enjoy but as a gift to future generations. . . . This is a book I will return to again and again for its wisdom, its humility and its irrepressible spirit. Read it and you will not be disappointed except for the fact that it must eventually end. I can’t recommend it enough. Without poets like Mary Mackey our lives would be poorer indeed.”
