Michael Leggs

"Advance the Engine Summer" is the first published collection of poems by Saint Paul, Minnesota writer/musician Michael Leggs. He teaches English at Saint Paul College, and earned his M.A. in English at Kansas State University as a recipient of the William H. Hickok Creative Writing Fellowship. This collection includes selections previously published in The Argotist, Pith, and American Drivel Review.

"Leggs builds something here that is rare in modern poetic diction: delicate bridges from which we can view fantastic falls. . . [His lines] extend to the reader a gossamer machinery, which, once entrusted can transport you deeply into worlds that are both wondrous and proximate."  - J. Rod Clark,
