Mourning the loss of a member of our poet family – Michael Macklin

Michael’s obituary (link is on our website) touched on the many circles of friends and colleagues that he moved in. Moon Pie Press is proud to have published his first chapbook, DRIFTLAND. He was working on his next poetry book when he left us at only 62. He was a generous, kindly mentor and teacher, friend, poet, terrific reader, traveler, husband, father, carpenter, and dog lover, greatly missed by a tremendous number of people of all kinds.Michael had the Irish gift of speaking and writing eloquently and seeing poetry in the everyday, and he moved through the world with great appreciation and gusto for life.
