Marcus Clayton grew up in South Gate, CA and recently graduated from California State University, Long Beach in 2012 with a BA in English. While he’s currently working on an MFA in Poetry from the same University, he also tutors extensively and occasionally runs workshops at the Los Angeles SouthWest College. Outside of academia, he is also a passionate fan of music and comics—both which play a significant role in his poems.
