In The Words of Chairman Me
First published in 2004
A somewhat tongue-in-cheek presentation of Mark’s poetry and prose writing, it nevertheless contained some serious writing alongside works of a more frivolous and fun nature. This was the last of his efforts in chapbooks, before he moved on to pastures new – in work, living, and literary activities.
Confessions of A Poetry Virgin
First published in 2001
Relatively new to the poetry scene when it was first published, hence the title, Mark presented this small collection to mark his début as a poet. This wasn’t only in the written form, but as a performance poet standing up to be counted at the microphone before an audience of his peers. Indeed, it was the influence of open mic poets that first inspired him to capture his poetic thoughts on paper and present them aloud. To this day, his poetic works remains influence by that and is written to be read aloud – if you dare.
