Mark Russell was born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in Somerset, England, and now lives in Scotland. Spearmint and Rescue is his first full collection (available from Pindrop Press). His poetry has an eye for the transient everyday aspects of living, overheard conversations, and deeper emotional attachments. In the clips here we talk about how long a collection takes to form, catch a glimpse of a jogging poet (Stewart Alexander Sanderson), and momentarily get drowned out by the wind.
