The product of immigrants from Russia, but born and raised in South Florida, Mark Blok, 27, has been quietly grazing pages filled with literature and lyrical compositions. Before the age of 10, he was published Anthology of Poetry By Young Americans. At the age of 19, he sold his first instrumental arrangement. After moving to the New York City at the age of 23, he wrote and produced a folk record (Mark Blok EP), and even participated in short film projects for their musical scores. But with very little direction, he moved back to South Florida to start from the scratch. He is back in school completing a degree in English Literature, while still pursuing creative works in the process. Read his poems: The Echoes of Uncertainty, Snow Day! and New York! New York!
