FEATURED POET: Mark Heinlein
Mark Heinlein’s work cuts to the emotional bone of our daily activities. From eating leftover kung pao chicken, flocking Christmas trees, grocery shopping, to contemplating the magnitude of war and the inevitable struggles with mortality, to the fine caresses of lovers, Mark’s work finds beauty and humanity in the mundane aspects of our lives. Winner of the 2009 American Academy of Poets/Virginia de Arujo Award, his work has been performed live on the radio, and he has read his poetry at the Cinequest Festival and at bars, galleries and bookstores throughout Northern California.
