M. Magnus

“Baltimore has provided a major outlet for M. Magnus’ work, as read and as written.  Michael Ball’s i.e. reading series has offered occasions for M. to read his work in a variety of venues from Red Emma’s, Dionysus Lounge, and here at Carriage House.  So, too, Baltimore-area reading events associated with Shattered Wig, Towson, and the Narrow House conglomerate of literary endeavors have given him the opportunity to present his poetry in recent years.  From out of this same creative center, his poems have found placement in publications such as Shattered Wig Review #27, Schizotype, and Chimera: I Am My Own Twin. M. Magnus’ book, Verb Sap, is currently in production with Baltimore’s own Narrow House Print.  Based in Alexandria, Virginia, M. is thrilled to be one of the participants in an ongoing artistic exchange–a blending and fusing, at this point–of D.C.-area and Baltimore-area poetry communities.”

BUCK DOWNS – Postcard Project

Posted in Uncategorized on December 3, 2007 by M. Ball

This is a new monthly feature on the i.e. site- Buck Downs’ Postcard Project-

One of DC’s & America’s most savvy, discombobulating, inventive, gifted & giving
poets. Enjoy!

“The postcard project began to find its current shape in 1993. I had been hand-typing individual poem-postcards, mailing them to poetry/art friends like Brett Evans, while concurrently doing the small-poet thing of compiling, mailing, and tracking responses to manuscripts from mostly presses and zines. The latter enterprise was depressing and unproductive, even when successful, while the poem-postcards turned out to be a positive hoot. So in the summer of 1993 I gave up the habit of sending work to magazine editors, and raided my address book to build a list of people whose opinions mattered to me.”
