His work has appeared in The Kenyon Review, New England Review, The Yale Review, Harper’s, the New Republic, the Sewanee Review, The Best American Poetry, and Southwest Review, among other places. Anderson also edited The Selected Poems of Howard Nemerov. His honors include a Pushcart Prize as well as fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Bogliasco Foundation. He currently teaches in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Oregon and is a regular faculty member of the Sewanee Writers’ Conference and the Sewanee School of Letters.

All are invited to join the Sewanee Writers’ Conference and Department of English to celebrate Mr. Anderson’s new collection and welcome a longstanding member of Sewanee’s writing community back to the Mountain.
