How best to reveal a decade in publishing poetry, visual literature, collaborative books, selected compilations and multifarious pamphlets, posters and fictions? For a complete bibliography of over thirty entries, please visit www.stevenjfowler.com/bibliography

Otherwise, below, I have tried to relay the kind of story mostly absent from my books, how I have published in overarching themes or with certain methods, at certain times in the development of my writing.

Three poetry collections about love, violence and ignorance in age of the anthropocene 2014 to 2017

EYEWEAR PUBLISHING : 2014 -   My 4th poetry collection. A book of sequences, mostly about love.   “SJ Fowler's poems deal with disjunctions and interjections. They present us with a world that moves fast where the lyrical impulse flowers, breaks and flowers again, too briefly to assert its full syntactic argument.
