Mark Antony Owen


Mark Antony Owen writes poetry in syllabic metre. His work draws on that world where the countryside bleeds into suburban living –

a world he calls ‘subrural’.


Building economic poems around small details of subrural life and shifting between recollection and observation, the past and the present, Mark chooses to colour his subjects darker than they are.


Each of his poems uses one or other of nine self-developed forms, sometimes with variations. Mark lives and writes in Hampshire.
