Maria Martin first began attending the Poetry Society's readings and workshops in 2015. It was her New Years resolution to go to every Poetry Society event because she was a professional babysitter and had no one to talk to about poems. It was also her New Years resolution to begin telling people she was a poet. Through the Poetry Society of South Carolina, she met her teacher, Richard Garcia, who invited her to write with his poetry workshop, The Long Table Poets. Maria Martin's poetry has been published in Narrative, jubilat, Superstition Review and elsewhere. She lives in Charleston, SC and serves on the board of the Poetry Society of South Carolina.
