She is editor of Knoxville Bound, a literary anthology inspired by Knoxville, and a poetry chapbook, After Appalachia, published in 2007 by Finishing Line Press in Kentucky.
Linda Parsons Marion writes of home and the earth it’s built on. Through poems of childhood and gardening, she sings and grieves for the lost and the found in her life, for the many struggles and failings of the human heart. She is the poetry editor of Now & Then magazine and has received a Pushcart Prize nomination and literary fellowships from the Tennessee Arts Commission. Marion is the author of poetry collections Home Fires and the newly published Mother Land. Her poems have appeared in The Georgia Review, Iowa Review, Shenandoah, Asheville Poetry Review, Prairie Schooner, and Listen Here: Women Writing in Appalachia, among others. She is an editor at the University of Tennessee and lives and gardens in North Hills with her husband, poet Jeff Daniel Marion.
