Marty McConnell is the author of wine for a shotgun, released in October 2012 on EM Press. Part of the vanguard of poets fusing and refusing the delineations between literary and oral poetry, McConnell’s work blurs the lines between autobiography and personae to comment on and illuminate what it means to live and love outside the lines in early 21st century America. You're also welcome to come edit our poetry journal (it's fun, don't worry!) or read your work on our stage for possible publication in Tandem, our annual anthology!
Also, do you own your own copy of Tandem: Vol I yet? Good heavens, you should! Get it here.
