Marc Janssen will be reading from his book November Reconsidered, published by Cirque Press in 2021. It’s part rant, part meditation, part acerbic commentary… a gritty and darkly funny collection of November poems that transport us from site to site, back and forth through time.
Marc has been writing poems since around 1980. His verse can be found scattered around the world in places like Pinyon, Slant, Cirque Journal, Off the Coast and Poetry Salzburg . He coordinates the Salem Poetry Project- a weekly reading, the occasionally occurring Salem Poetry Festival, and was a nominee for Oregon Poet Laureate.
