Martin has authored two books of poetry and has been published extensively across a range of poetry journals. He works primarily in the metrical field (rhythm and rhyme), but writes in free forms such as haiku too. Since 2009, he has been commissioned to compose poetry for elegies and has been described as 'a joyous craftsman' (Matthew Kirshman, author of The Magic Flower & Other Sonnets). Martin offers a variety of traditional forms such as the ballad, ghazal, pantoum, rondeau, Sapphic, sonnet, terza-rima, and villanelle, as well as nonce forms (his own inventions).
