Synopses & Reviews
William Crawford has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize in poetry. His work has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, most recently including, Counterexample Poetics, The Criterion, Danse Macabre, Differentia Press: Corporeal Manifestations, Leaf Garden, Luciole Press, Unlikely Stories of the Third Kind, and Up the Staircase Quarterly. Fire in the Marrow is his first poetry collection. William lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is an animal rights activist.
In an age where poetry is prominent by the selves of most prevalent self-definition (too, by like-minded thoughts creating intertwining ideologies), Crawford needn't qualify himself as a poet through the eyes of his very own, for he is easily identifiable by the markings his poetry creates across the psyche of his fortunate readers.
- Felino A. Soriano, author of Apperceptions of Reinterpretations
Drink deeply, all ye who revel in the ability of language to spark perceptual transcendence - William Crawford offers hope and sustenance for aesthetes mired in the all-too-often catachrestic wasteland of modern popular poetry.
- Rich Follett, co-author of Responsorials
Crawford isn't afraid to shoot the rapids, and anyone who is capable of flying will find their arms much more malleable after soaring along these canyons of his rhythmic vision.
- Scott Wannberg, author of Strange Movie Full of Death
A sentinel calling us to rise above our need for distance from the pain of life, Crawford is a singular patron poet-saint reminding us of the beauty we can draw from the marrow of afflictions.
- Karen Bowles, Publisher, Luciole Press
