White House Poetry Revival Wed 25th March 2009
Wed 25th March 2009 9.00pm
This weeks guest poet is Marck L Beggs.
Marck L. Beggs earned his Ph.D. from the University of Denver, his M.F.A. from Warren Wilson College, and currently is a professor and graduate dean at Henderson State University in Arkansas. Mostly, though, he lives a simple life in a cabin by a pond, sort of like Thoreau with technology. When he is not writing or singing his quasi-folk songs, he can sometimes be found watching the weeds proliferate in his garden as he daydreams of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and butternut squash. Needless to say, he cites Whitman as a major influence. He is the author of Catastrophic Chords (Salmon Poetry 2008), Libido Café (Salmon Poetry, 2004) and Godworm (1995). His folk-rock band, dog gods, released their debut CD in 2008.
