Beaufort poet Quitman Marshall releases new book 'You Were Born One Time'

Quitman Marshall's new book of poetry, "You Were Born One Time," was published last month by Ninety-Six Press of Furman University, after he was awarded the South Carolina Poetry Archives Book Prize. The poet, who has lived in Beaufort since 2001, previewed the book earlier this spring. Marshall primed the audience with anecdotes and introduced his fellow poets, grumbling in his cosmopolitan yet South Carolina-rootsy way. Photographer Gary Geboy called out from the audience, "You should take this on the road, Quitman!"
