Public Poetry's "Prize Poets"


"Prize Poets" is a once-a-year showcase for prominent, nationally-acclaimed poets. For the inaugural event, two recent winners of the prestigious Yale Prize for Younger Poets, Fady Joudah and Katherine Larson, will be featured. Joudah, a Palestinian American, won for The Earth in the Attic. He is also a practicing physician of internal medicine and has worked with Doctors Without Borders.

Larson won for Radial Symmetry. Her poetry was highlighted on PBS's Newshour Poetry Series and her poems appear in Prentice Hall’s anthology Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing, and in various poetry journals.
