Markay Brown

Markay Brown, St George, Utah, was born an addict to the written word. A graduate of BYU, she began writing poetry at an age well beyond precociousness. How about 60? She won first place for her manuscript, Eve’s Child, in the 2014 Utah Original Writing Competition, Book-length Collection of Poetry, judged by Richard Howard of Columbia University. Markay and her poet husband collaborated on a book of poems titled, Blended. She serves as president of Redrock Writers, a chapter of the Utah State Poetry Society. Family, friends, reading, writing, music, and long walks in the red rocks make her happy.
