Distinguished Writers Series - Greg Pardlo
Greg Pardlo's poetry collection Digest won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. The Pulitzer judges cited his "clear voiced poems that bring readers the news from 21st Century America, rich with thought, ideas and histories public and private."
Pardlo's book Totem won the APR/Honickman First Book Prize. His work has been praised for its "language simultaneously urban and highbrow" with "snapshots of a life that is so specific it becomes universal." His poems, reviews, and translations have appeared in The American Poetry Review, Callaloo, Poet Lore, Harvard Review, Ploughshares and on National Public Radio. In 2017, Pardlo was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. He teaches in the MFA program at Rutgers University.
