Maceo J. Whitaker: “I live in the thriving arts community of Beacon, New York. My favorite poets include Martín Espada, Mary Karr, and James Tate. My favorite rappers are Redman and Big L. I have many failed epic poems, including one in which mushroom consumption goes awry at a Draco Malfoy convention.” (website)
