Poet Carl Phillips next Rea Visiting Writer

Carl Phillips, award-winning poet and director of the creative writing program at Washington University in St. Louis, will be at U.Va. the first week in April as the Rea Visiting Writer in the English department. He will present a talk on the craft of poetry April 2 and a reading from his work April 4. Both events will be held at 8 p.m. in the U.Va. Bookstore.

Phillips, a professor of English and African and Afro-American Studies, is the author of five highly acclaimed collections of poetry: The Tether, Pastoral, From the Devotions, Cortege and In the Blood.

He has received numerous honors, most recently the 2002 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, which recognizes a poet in mid-career for his or her latest book and comes with a $100,000 prize. His poems, essays and translations have appeared in such journals as Atlantic Monthly, the Paris Review and the Yale Review and in anthologies.

The Rea Visiting Writer program in U.Va.’s English department is sponsored by the Dungannon Foundation and the Henry Hoyns Fund. During his visit at U.Va., Phillips will work with graduate students in the Creative Writing Program.
