Syllabic poet Mark Antony Owen writes exclusively in nine original forms – sometimes, with variations. His work centres on that world where the rural bleeds into the suburban: a world he calls ‘subrural’.

Mark’s economic, often bittersweet, poetry cycles through themes of love and loss and what we think we remember. His poems – some general, others intensely personal – shift unchronologically back and forth between things observed and things recalled.

Based in subrural East Hampshire, Mark is the author of digital-only poetry project Subruria.
