Kevin Morgan Watson is publisher, editor in chief, and founder of Press 53, located in Winston-Salem, NC. For seventeen years, Kevin and his team of editors have been finding and sharing remarkable voices in poetry and short fiction from writers around the world.

He has published seven collections of poetry with Press 53, most recently Bodies in Motion. His book This Miraculous Turning was awarded the 2015 Roanoke-Chowan Award for Poetry, and his collection Angels, Thieves, and Winemakers was called “a must have for wine lovers” by the Washington Post. His poetry has been featured several times on Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac and in former U.S. poet laureate Ted Kooser’s nationally syndicated newspaper column “American Life in Poetry.” In addition to his volumes of poetry, he has researched and written two editions of A Guide to North Carolina’s Wineries with his wife, Danielle Tarmey. He also has edited a collection of film criticism, A Century of the Marx Brothers. He has degrees in literature from the University of Chicago, the University of New Mexico, and the University of California, Davis.
