   I've been penning traditional style verse, rhyming poetry, for 58 years now. That's right...I'm OLD! Born and raised in the Midwest, most of what I have to offer clearly reflects the lifestyle of a native 1950 - 1970s Iowa boy. My wife, Connie, and I currently live in Tiffin, Iowa.

   Having for so long been a prolific poet, and having cut my teeth on the likes of Byron, Frost and Poe, I've always enjoyed the challenge of composing pieces that are finely metered, built with honest rhyme, and, for the most part, are "meaningful". I've been accused of being a philosopher more than once, and have never disputed it.

   I've just finished producing a 4 CD set of AUDIO-CDs with 4 1/2 hours on each disc. (MP3 format) (8-15-2020). They're available on my author's site at:,  and even on ebay by searching  "Mark Stellinga Poetry". There are currently several samples of my work on Facebook and Twitter  (at  "MarknConnie"), and directly on YouTube, again, under  "Mark Stellinga Poetry". Or feel free to email me at:

I get a lot of wonderful compliments on my work from fellow poets, and told that my style is quite different from "the norm" these days. I hope you'll check me out.
