Half Drunk Muse Poetry

Maurice Oliver

Maurice Oliver spent almost a decade working as a freelance photographer in Europe. Then, in 1995 after returning to America, he made a lifelong dream reality by traveling around the world for eight months, recording his experiences in a journal instead of pictures. And so began his desire to be a poet. His poetry has appeared in The Potomac Journal, Circle Magazine, Bullfight Review, Tryst3 Journal, The MAG, Pebble Lake Review, Eye-Shot, The Surface, Wicked Alice, WordRiot, Taj Mahal Review (India), Stride Magazine (UK), Retort Magazine (Australia), & online at undergroundvoices.com, tmpoetry.com, zafusy.com, subtletea.com, friggmagazine.com, girlswithinsurance.com, & interpoetry.com(UK).  He currently lives in Portland, Oregon where he is a tutor.
