...gave one of the best readings I have EVER HEARD anywhere
Naomi Shihab Nye
Poet, Songwriter and Novelist
The work of Pushcart Prize nominated poet Scott McDaniel has been featured in Mad Swirl, Deep South Magazine, the Oberon Poetry Magazine, Common Ground Review, The Opiate and The New Guard. He has read throughout his home state of Arkansas as well as Castletownroche (County Cork, Ireland) and Manhattan.
Scott began writing poetry at an early age and was encouraged to do so by his cousin, award-winning inaugural poet Miller Williams. He lives and works in his hometown of Jonesboro, Arkansas; a city outside of Memphis that is highly influenced by the culture of the Mississippi delta. His writings reflect the unique hues, quirks and broken promises of the modern south.
