About Marc Alan Di Martino


I’ve been writing and publishing poetry
for over twenty years, though it wasn’t until 2018 that I was actually paid for a poem. It was only $50, but it was something. I occasionally make ten or twenty bucks for a poem, but it hardly compensates for the thousands of hours spent writing, revising, submitting, proofreading and sharing my poems so they can be read free of charge by anyone anywhere.

My work has appeared in dozens of well-known journals and anthologies, including RattlePalette PoetryBaltimore Review, Italian Americana and Valparaiso Poetry Review as well as the anthologies FlooredUnsheathedMaking Up and 
What Remains. My first collection, Unburial was published by Kelsay Books in 2019 and my second, Still Life with City is forthcoming from Pski’s Porch. I am also working on a volume of translations of the Roman dialect poet Mario dell’Arco, Day Lasts Forever, which will be the first book-length translation of this important poet’s work in English.

My work has also been featured on the Rattlecast - a weekly podcast by Rattle Magazine - and at Frontier Poetry's How It's Made interview series about how poetry collections come together. I'm keeping busy!
