Publication Credits- -------------------------- -Home ------------------------------ Mark's Bio

Welcome to Mark's Bookshop

Below you will find descriptions of my poetry books self-published under the impression Ink Bottle Press. These chapbooks were
done on my handy-dandy home computer and printed on my inkjet printer. I have sold some of these books but mostly they go
to family and friends or have been traded with other poets for their chapbooks. Since poetry is a net-loss financial proposition,
I have decided
to present these books for reading on my website rather have them languish on my bookshelf waiting to be sold.

So, for your reading pleasure, click 'Read this book'
or click on the picture of the book and the volume
will be presented for reading. Some books also have
audio and you can listen to me read the poem. Just
click on the audio icon associated with each poem.

Reading in Cobourg

After retiring in 2006, I moved to Cobourg and joined the Cobourg Poetry Workshop. This is a vital group of about 20 local poets who workshop their poetry on the 3rd tuesday and host readings at a local cafe on the 3rd thursday of every month. These are the poems I read at a 2006 thursday evening reading.
