Welcome. You’ve reached the website of Newfoundland poet, critic, and all around stand-up guy, Mark Callanan. I used to maintain a proper website, but blogging software is so much easier to manipulate and I was never great at writing code to begin with. Anyway, here you’ll find poems, book promos, and little else.


“One of the most finely crafted books, from the level of the line on up, of the last couple of years.”

-Michael Lista in The National Post
