About Jeremy Nathan Marks

I am a writer and an independent educator living in London, Ontario, Canada. I am seeking a publisher for my first book of poetry and am always on the look out for opportunities to read my work in public.

Thank you for reading!

It has been awhile . . . .

It has been a while since I last posted. In the meantime, I have had some poetry and prose accepted for publication and I can share some of those links here.

At the moment, I find myself in transition. I am working with students both independently and at an independent school but I have elected to focus my writing on fictional and poetic pieces. This is why I have not been posting about education. I have been doing a lot of thinking about classroom democracy and whether the use of the Socratic Method fulfills the democratic ends that, as an educator, I would like to foster in my work. More on that later.

In the meantime, here are some links to a few creative pieces that have appeared since August with more to come as some additional work of mine (poetry, prose, photography) is set to appear in the coming weeks. Thank you for reading.
