Marc Christensen,
Member of Advisory Board

Marc ChristensenBy day Marc Christensen is UVic's Publications Officer, and by night he runs Emdash Publications, a small literary press in Victoria. Marc's poetry has largely appeared in journals beginning with the names of US states, including the Minnesota Review, the Pennsylvania Review, and the Michigan Chronicle, and has won awards including the Academy of American Poets' John Clare Prize. Marc's poetry reviews have appeared in The Globe and Mail and in alternative newsweeklies like Victoria's Monday Magazine and the Detroit Metro Times. Contemporary touchstones on his reading list include Lorenzo Thomas, Gloria Frym, Fanny Howe, Juliana Spahr, and Ron Padgett, but his pet peeve is that books of poetry sometimes go too long on library shelves without being read.
