An award-winning poetry reading

Feb 12, 2009  

Poetry writer-in-residence Olena Kalytiak Davis will give a public reading of her work at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, at Galbreath Chapel. A reception and book signing will follow the event.

Davis is the author of "Shattered Sonnets, Love Cards, and Other Off and Back Handed Importunities," a Spring 2004 Book Sense Poetry Top Ten Pick, and "And Her Soul Out Of Nothing," which was selected for the Brittingham Prize in Poetry. She has received fellowships and grants from many organizations, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Rona Jaffe Foundation, the Alaska and Juneau Arts Councils and the Rasmuson Foundation. Her poems have won a Pushcart Prize and appeared in numerous journals and anthologies including four volumes of Best American Poetry.

While on campus next week, Davis will visit undergraduate poetry classes, hold a workshop for graduate students and meet with graduate students for individual discussions.

The residency is sponsored by the Program in Creative Writing and Department of English, with support from the College of Arts and Sciences.
