Author's Bio

Max Stephan’s work has appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, the Cimarron Review, Appalachia, Blueline, Lyric, the Louisiana Review, the Potomac Review, the New Mexico Review, the Rockhurst Review and Slipstream. Currently he is wooing publishers with his latest collection of poems entitled Mycology. Stephan is an Assistant Professor at Niagara University, specializing in Contemporary American Poetry and creative writing.

Also, for over a decade now, Stephan has been piloting the most comprehensive textual criticism of poet Mary Oliver to date. The foci of his research include the tedious archival process of collecting, documenting, and analyzing Oliver’s original journal publications as far back as the 1950’s. The ever-growing collection of artifacts (500+) is the largest of its kind nationwide.
