Talking Art with Salvatore Marici

Ways To Subscribe
Edward Schiffer

Local poet Salvatore Marici’s fourth volume of poetry, Sneezing Coyotes, is now available for pre-order through Ice Cube Press.  Set in both familiar and faraway terrain, his poems explore human vulnerability and the universality of our hopes and desires with both humor and clear-eyed realism.

Listen to our conversation here about how his experience working in Guatemala as a Peace Corps volunteer affected his poetry and world view; his concern for the environment and the love of nature that his subsequent career as an agronomist instilled; and the writing community he has discovered in the Quad Cities within the Midwest Writing Center.

Salvatore Marici now divides his time between Florida and Port Byron, Illinois.

Ice Cube Press is an independent book publisher based in North Liberty, Iowa, which uses literature as a vehicle for understanding the Midwestern heartland. Pre-order your book now to obtain a signed copy!
