Poetry. Christopher Martin is the editor of the online eco-literary magazine Flycatcher and a Masters of Creative Writing student at Kennesaw State University. Already an established presence in the worlds of the environment and southern literature, he is considered a "young phenom" in literary circles in the Southeast. A CONFERENCE OF BIRDS is his first book of poetry—a thematic collection of bird-related poems that are sensitive and keen-eyed. Like a walk in the woods. An auspiciious (see "auspice") start to what promises to be a long and eventful career. A limited editon, fine arts edition chapbook using full cover wrap-around cover art illustrations by New York artist Hara Woltz and fine quality textured and colored papers.
