Poet and editor R.T. Smith to read at U.Va. Nov. 29

Shenandoah Poet and editor R.T. Smith to read at U.Va. Nov. 29

R.T. Smith, award-winning poet and editor of Shenandoah, a literary journal published at Washington & Lee University, will read from his work Nov. 29 as the next Peters Rushton Visiting Writer at U.Va. Smith’s reading, at 8 p.m. in the University Bookstore, is free and open to the public.

Smith’s extensive list of poetry publications includes, most recently, Messenger, published this year by Louisiana State University Press, and Split the Lark: Selected Poems, published in 1999. His work, twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in poetry, often focuses on Southern and Irish culture and landscapes.

During his visit, Smith will meet informally with U.Va. students. He has edited Shenandoah at Washington & Lee, where he teaches English, since 1995. The magazine has been cited repeatedly for consistently publishing some of the country’s best poetry, fiction and essays.
