Local author Daniel McTaggart will be featured with Morgantown Poets at 7pm Thursday April 21 at Monongalia Arts Center (MAC). An Open Mic follows immediately thereafter.
Daniel McTaggart is a Morgantown native who has been writing poetry for more than 30 years. In 1989, he was selected to participate in the WVU English Department's Sturm Visiting Writers Workshop with Wayne Dodd. His work has appeared in Laurels, Screaming Zebra, and NACS Magazine. His poem "Monarch Sunning on Cooper's Rock" was selected by busride.org's 2010 Poetry on the Move program. He has published several books of poetry, most recently "Diner Poems" and "Morgantown Madrigals."
Daniel's poetry focuses on the nostalgic, the familiar, and the unnoticed quiet moments occurring all around us. Through his pen, he stops for a burger at the diner, dodges cow patties on his grandfather's pasture, or listens to the sounds of a coffee shop.
