Lynn Martin’s poetry has appeared in Calliope, River City Review, South Florida Review, The Garden State, Green Mountains Review, Sinister Wisdom, Connecticut Review, Earth’s Daughters, Sweet Annie Press, The Centennial Review, and Friends Journal. She also has work in the anthologies, Heartbeat of New England, My Lover Is A Woman, Tail Feathers, and Connections: New York City Bridges in Poetry. Her non-fiction has been published in the Mystery Review, Out in the Mountains, Foster Families and the Southeastern Audubon Society newsletter. She is the author of Visible Signs of Defiance and Talking to the Day. Meg Mott, writer and Professor at Marlboro College, describes Martin this way, “Lynn comes to poetry from a working class background. Her verse contains a raw truthfulness uncontaminated by privilege. Lynn’s style compliments that of the state of Vermont: sharp lines, a tough backbone, and an aesthetic the quality of moss.” Lynn reads her poetry as a reflection of her life seen in one day: dawn, morning, day and evening. She will be reading from a collection of her work.
