This is the account of Mark Parsons, me.
Most if not all the work I upload here will have been previously published.
I post here for the following reasons:
to promote my work & get it to a wider audience;
to promote the journals and websites that have published my work;
because some of the folks on here might be interested and submitting to these same places that have published my work (I've recognized at least one profile picture);
to look for readers who may be able to help me refine my work and continue to develop as a poet.
I usually never upload unpublished poems, because that limits future opportunities to get the poems in print or in wider circulation.
One exception would be poems that are un-publishable in the current politically correct atmosphere.
Poets I enjoy, The Moderns & Before:
William Carlos Williams
Joseph Moncure March
Carlos Drummond de Andrade
