Mark Antony Owen is an English poet writing in syllabic metre.

His work draws on that world where the countryside bleeds into

the suburban – a world he calls ‘subrural’.


He applies a dark filter to his experiences of subrural life, building economic poems around small details as he shifts from recollection

to observation, the personal to the general; each poem using one

of nine self-developed forms, sometimes with variations.


Mark currently lives and writes in subrural Hampshire.
