Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Since its founding in 2001, Marsh Hawk Press has focused on the relationship between poetry and the visual arts, publishing the ekphrastic poetry of Sharon Dolin, the sculptural poetry of Eileen R. 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 Chapter One Project from Marsh Hawk Press features the memoirs of outstanding poets from diverse backgrounds, recalling the ways by which they found their start as writers. While creative writing programs seek to develop the talents of maturing writers, recondite but essential information about the development of the writing craft will be discovered in the early memoirs—the Chapter One’s—of established poets published in this series .The press also 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.
