Marc Olmsted

Allen Ginsberg said “Marc Olmsted inherited Burroughs’ scientific nerve and Kerouac’s movie-minded line nailed down with gold eyebeam in San Francisco.” Olmsted has appeared in City Lights Journal, New Directions in Prose & Poetry, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, Signs of Life (a Manic D Press anthology), Processed World, The Flesh Eaters’ Chris D’s Bongo Chalice, Blue Satellite and a variety of small presses. His books include Milky Desire (Subterranean Press, 1991) and Résumé (Inevitable Press, 1998), and his latest, Don’t Hesitate: Knowing Allen Ginsberg (Beatdom Books, 2014).
