We are delighted to share the news that acclaimed poet and translator, Roy Marshall joins Maytree Press as part of our editorial team.
Roy will be working with founding editors, Amanda and David to assist with our Portfolio Awards, forthcoming anthology submissions and open submissions.
Roy brings a wealth of experience to the team having published three celebrated poetry collections whilst also working as a creative writing lecturer.
For those who follow Roy on social media, you will also know that he has a keen eye for a good photograph and we are thrilled to be able to use one of Roy’s images on our next cover – look out for the Maytree 36 cover reveal coming soon – it’s simply stunning.
Roy’s first collection, The Sun Bathers (Shoestring Press, 2013) was short-listed for the Michael Murphy award. His second book, The Great Animator appeared in 2017 and a collection of his versions of the poems of the Italian poet Eugenio Montale, After Montale, was published in 2019. Roy’s poems and short stories have appeared widely in magazines and anthologies in the UK and Ireland, as well as featuring in Poems in The Waiting Room, New Zealand. Roy worked as a coronary care nurse for many years, and later, in adult education, most recently as a part time lecturer in creative writing.
