Tabios and Thomas Fink, the abstract-expressionist poetic memoires of Basil King, as well as the award-winning works of Phillip Lopate, Mary Mackey, Steve Fellner, George Quasha and others. The press sponsors readings, exhibits, an online magazine, a website with rotating photo gallery space, and several blogs focused on poetry and visual art, as well as awarding the annual Marsh Hawk Press book publication prize, the Robert Creeley Memorial Award and the Rochelle Ratner Memorial Prize.
