Garrett named state’s Poet Laureate

Virginia Gov. Mark Warner announced earlier this month that he appointed George Garrett, U.Va.’s Henry Hoyns Professor of Creative Writing Emeritus, as the state’s poet laureate.

Garrett, who was elected to emeritus status in January 2000, has published seven volumes of poetry, as well as several novels and essays. His most recent work was Days of Our Lives Lie in Fragments: New and Old Poems 1957-1997. His Collected Poems was published in 1984.

In 1999, Garrett won the prestigious Aiken Taylor Award for Modern American Poetry, a $10,000 prize given in honor of a distinguished career. It is presented by the Sewanee Review, the nation’s oldest literary quarterly.
