I have studied with poets Lisel Mueller, Carolyn Forché, Heather McHugh, Susan Mitchell, Carol Muske-Dukes among others. I have had several residencies at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, Illinois and have done numerous readings in the Chicago area.
I have also led poetry workshops over the years, most notably
“Poetry Forum” at the Evanston Public Library. I have had work selected for broadcast on “Dial-a-Poem, Chicago". I currently serve on the board of directors for New Town Writers in Chicago and was a co-editor of an anthology they recently published titled "Gay and Gray".
My book, The Way Here, and my chapbook, The Gods of the Grand Resort are both available on Amazon Books. My website is www.marcfrazier.org.
I have a new chapbook coming out in 2013 and a new book in the next 12-24 months.
