ABOUT MARTIN SHAW

Dr Martin Shaw is an artist, author and teacher. He is a painting scholar from the British School in Rome and has exhibited in the UK, Europe and United States.

Author of the award winning Mythteller trilogy (A Branch From The Lightning Tree, Snowy Tower, Scatterlings), he founded the Oral Tradition and Mythic Life courses at Stanford University, whilst being director of the Westcountry School of Myth in the UK. He has introduced thousands of people to mythology and how it penetrates modern life. For twenty years Shaw has been a wilderness rites of passage guide, working with at-risk youth, the sick, returning veterans and many women and men seeking a deeper life.

His translations of Gaelic poetry and folklore (with Tony Hoagland) have been published in Orion Magazine, Poetry International, Kenyon Review, Poetry Magazine and the Mississippi Review. Fresh for 2019 will be his new book, The Night Wages, and his Lorca translations, Courting the Dawn (with Stephan Harding). His essay and conversation with Ai Weiwei on myth and migration will be published by the Marciano Arts foundation in early 2019.
