Marc Rahe

Marc Rahe received an M.F.A. from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. His poems have appeared in Gutcult, iO: A Journal of New American Poetry, jubilat, notnostrums, Painted Bride Quarterly, Petri Press, Sixth Finch, and other literary journals. Marc lives in Iowa City and works for a human service agency.

In GRAVITY WELL, Marc Rahe’s incisive third collection, the poems beckon readers through an ever-shifting series of landscapes, drawing our gaze across a dynamic tableau-an octopus wearing a sweater, a white sky over the bridge we’re standing on, flowers pressed into a forgotten book-as a means of revealing the most particular thrills and anxieties of the human condition.

Marc Rahe will red from his latest book, GRAVITY WELL, Tuesday, October 19 at 7 p.m. at the Iowa City Public Library, meeting room A.
