Marc Beaudin is a poet, theatre artist and bookseller from Livingston, Montana. His work has been anthologized in We Take Our Stand (edited by Rick Bass), Poems Across the Big Sky II, Awake in the World, vol. 2, and is forthcoming in anthologies by Raven Chronicles and Alternating Current. His latest book, Vagabond Song: Neo-Haibun from the Peregrine Journals, was called "a jazzy, freewheeling, rollicking road trip into the beating heart of the Eternal Now" by Montana Quarterly. He believes the Brahms' Violin Concerto in D is more powerful than all the guns, smokestacks and coal trains in the world.
