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!
About Ijagun Poetry Journal
Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
