Swimming with Elephants Poets in Public Service: MJR Montoya

During the month of April, the City of Albuquerque created a video series called Poets in Public Service to recognize the work local poets do in the community.  Several of the poets interviewed are authors with Swimming with Elephants Publications.

Check out this video of Manuel (MJR) Montoya.

MJR Montoya’s book, The Promethean Clock or Love Poems of a Wooden Boy, was published by Swimming with Elephants Publications in late December 2017.
