M. Bartley Seigel is the author of the poetry collection This Is What They Say (Typecast, 2012) and is founding editor of the critically acclaimed literary magazine [PANK]. He is assistant professor of creative writing and diverse literatures and director of English and Liberal Arts at Michigan Tech.

This Is What They Say introduces us to a poet of intensity and passion who sings against the backdrop of a world we know intimately, but which he has shown to us with new eyes. Dark and humorous, these pieces revel in language as they illuminate with imagery. M. Bartley Seigel is an important poet writing about a time and place that matter.”
––Laura Kasischke, author of National Book Critics Circle Award-winner Space, In Chains and The Life Before Her Eyes

“These graceful miniatures of the rural-minded and heart-weary are stirring, subtle, and true. Seigel, with his startling observations, will have you swearing to pay more attention to the world.”
––Deb Olin Unferth, National Book Critics Circle Award-finalist for Revolution: The Year I Fell in Love and Went to Join the War
