Mark Saba



Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Mark Saba has been writing for more than thirty years in the genres of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. He has also produced and directed two poetry videos.

The best way to get a feel for his writing is to read some excerpts from his manuscripts (publications and other work). Though grounded in the realism of vivid detail and human relationships, Mark's writing often takes a turn into fabulism, magical realism, or any other condition of the imagination that infuses it.

Mark is recently retired  from Yale University where he worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for 33 years. He lives with his family in Connecticut and Maine.
