Poet and Editor R.T. Smith Will Read at U.Va. Nov. 29

November 12, 2001 -- R.T. Smith, award-winning poet and editor of Shenandoah, the distinguished literary journal published at Washington and Lee University, will read from his work as the Peters Rushton Visiting Writer at the University of Virginia on Thursday, Nov. 29. 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.

Smith has edited Shenandoah at Washington and Lee, where he teaches English, since 1995. The magazine consistently publishes some of the country’s best poetry, fiction and essays. Smith previously co-edited the Southern Humanities Review at Auburn University. He will meet informally with U.Va. students during his visit Thursday.
