December 6: Gordon Marshall to Feature and Present the Jack Powers Stone Soup Savor Poetry Prize

Stone Soup meets every Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 on 138 Tremont Street in St. Paul's Cathedral's Lawrence room (past the receptionist area after entering the cathedral on the right-side entrance). On December 6, Gordon Marshall returns to not only feature but present the 2018 Jack Powers Stone Soup Savor Poetry Prize.

Gordon Marshall recently published his fortieth book, Here Before. He is a speed poet, writing as quickly as possible, so there is no censorship, and what occurs on the page is what occurs in his mind. His poetry draws much from surrealism and Romanticism, with subject matter taken from music, the body, nature, and urban experience. He is also a journalist and music critic, having performed over forty interviews with national jazz musicians. He has a blog, The Flash Boston (theflashboston.com). He lives in Boston.
