Arda Collins

Arda Collins’s collection of poems, It Is Daylight, won the 2008 Yale Series of Younger Poets prize. Judge Louise Gluck describes the volume as “a book of astonishing originality and intensity, unprecedented, unrepeatable.” Her poems have recently appeared in The New YorkerAmerican Poetry Reviewand A Public Space. A former Glenn Schaeffer Fellow at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, she is pursuing a Ph.D. in poetry at the University of Denver.

Check out some of her work on the Poetry Society of America’s Website, here.  Some of her poetry is on the site and I’m very excited to hear her read at Agnes Scott!
