Portland's Unsolicited Press Releases a Poetry Collection from Local Author

Unsolicited Press announced immediate availability of "A Penchant for Masquerades" by Carolyn Martin, a collection of playful and provocative poems.

From the universal to the personal, the formal to the experimental, Carolyn Martin's fourth poetry collection, A Penchant for Masquerades, takes an unflinching look at the fluidity of truth, time, identity, history, death, and relationships.

Martin time-travels with Neanderthals, Lucy, and Big Foot to 9/11 to the future collapse of a holographic universe. She mines scientific discoveries, nursery rhymes, biblical characters, and the works of Issa, Horace, Yeats, Frost, Williams, Szymborska, and Collins in poems that are both playful and thought-provoking.

From associate professor of English to management trainer to retiree, Carolyn Martin has journeyed from New Jersey to Oregon to discover Douglas firs, months of rain, and dry summers. Her poems and book reviews have appeared in publications throughout North America and the UK including "Stirring," "Naugatuck River Review," "CALYX," "The Curlew," and "Antiphon." Her third collection, Thin Places, was released by Kelsay Books in 2017. She is currently the poetry editor of Kosmos Quarterly, journal for global transformation.

"A Penchant for Masquerades" by Carolyn Martin is available directly from the publisher and all major retailers. Ingram Book Group distributes the title to the market.

Founded in 2012, Unsolicited Press was founded in 2012 and is based in Portland, OR. The press strives to produce exceptional works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from award-winning authors.
