Mark DuCharme was born in Detroit and grew up in its suburbs, the only child of a divorced mother. He earned a BA from the University of Michigan and, later, an MFA from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University. He self-published a rather large chapbook in 1990 with which he later became dissatisfied. Numerous chapbooks have followed, as well as four books: Cosmopolitan Tremble (2002), Infinity Subsections (2004), The Sensory Cabinet (2007) and Answer (2011). All of these contain “serial poetry” as well as “individual” poems. Beginning with The Found Titles Project (published in 2009 but written earlier in that decade) he abandoned serial poetry in favor of what he calls writing projects. The bulk of his work from this point on has been in the context of various writing projects. Since 2008, he has been at work on a project called The Unfinished.

Two stories were named in the Best American Short Stories annual list of 100 best stories. He lives in Denver, Colorado.
