POETS! David Rowe & Marc Olmsted

A native of Worcester, Mass., David Rowe was educated at Swarthmore. His poems have appeared in the Cortland Review, the North American Review, Big Bridge, Dorado, Solid Quarter, Exquisite Corpse, YAWP, & in the anthology, the Maple Leaf Rag.

A poet equally of the stage & the page, David has read his poetry on the Moe Green Poetry Show & WWOZ, & at countless venues both in the States & abroad. His first full-length book, just out from Verna Press (New Orleans), is Unsolicited Poems.

 

Allen Ginsberg said “Marc Olmsted inherited Burroughs’ scientific nerve & Kerouac’s movie-minded line nailed down with gold eyebeam in San Francisco.”

Olmsted has appeared in City Lights Journal, New Directions in Prose & Poetry, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, Processed World and a variety of small presses. His work includes two books, Mlky Desire (Subterranean Press, 1991) and Resume (Inevitable Press, 1998). He has also made two short films, Burroughs on Bowery, a portrait of the Naked Lunch author, and American Mutant, with Burroughs, Ginsberg & Timothy Leary.
