Author: Mark Young

Poet Mark Young was born and raised in New Zealand. His visual poetry often enacts language as a field with many possible paths. Playful and allusive in both his vispo and text-based poetry, Young engages words as both sources and objects. Young is the author of more than a dozen poetry collections, including TURPENTINE (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2020), TAXONIMIC DRIFT (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2019), LES ECHIQUIERS EFFRONTES (Luna Bisonte Prods, 2018), Genji Monogatari (2010), and Pelican Dreaming: Poems 1959-2008 (2008). With Jean Vengua, Young edited The First Hay(na)ku Anthology (2005). Young's work has been included in the anthology Big Smoke: New Zealand Poems 1960 -1975 (2000). He edits the online journal Otoliths and its paper-based companion press.
