Poetry. "I was riding in a plane from Dublin when I read Michael Brosnan's poem in The Moth. You know when you feel you've found a poet for keeps? At that moment I wondered if he had many books. Turns out, Brosnan had no poetry book. Now he does. Please greet his debut as I did. He's one for the company of others. Welcome this name perhaps you've never heard of but who has been writing poems diligently and publishing in journals for years."—Peter Money
Naomi Shihab Nye calls THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE ACCIDENTAL a "stunning book...It's as if he found the pulse of poetry," while Eamon Grennan says Michael Brosnan's debut is "an impressive, deeply satisfying debut."
Michael Brosnan's poetry has appeared in numerous literary journals, including Confrontation, Borderlands, Prairie Schooner, Barrow Street, New Letters, The Moth, and Rattle. He is the author of Against the Current, a book on inner-city education that served as a basis for the award-winning documentary Accelerating America. He also edited The Inclusive School, a collection of essays on issues of equity and justice in education. For years, he was editor of Independent School, an award-winning quarterly magazine on precollegiate education. Now he serves as senior editor for the blog Teaching While White and writes often on issues in education. He lives in Exeter, New Hampshire, runs in all directions, and plays the Irish tenor banjo.
