Mark Antony Owen is an English poet writing in syllabic metre. His work draws on that world where the countryside bleeds into what we think of as suburbia. He calls this world ‘subruria’.


Applying a dark filter to his experiences of subrural life, Mark builds economic poems around small details; shifts from the personal to the general, recollection to observation – each poem in one of nine self-developed forms, sometimes with variations.


Mark lives and writes in subrural East Hampshire.
