Tower Journal, Winter 2011-12

by Marie Marshall

Poet and editor Mary Ann Sullivan has done me the honour of featuring eleven of my poems, alongside those of US Laureate (2008-2010) Kay Ryan and former Laureate Daniel Hoffmann, in the current issue of The Tower Journal. My featured poems are all from my 2011 output and include all four of the poems inspired by Veronica Franco (or perhaps five, as Calle dei Morte might be narrated by her or a ‘scene’ in her psyche – I wasn’t sure when I wrote it and I think I’ll leave it arcane). Mary Ann has been very complimentary about my poems and I was very pleased to be invited into an issue of Tower.
