Good Morning, Writers! For today's Countdown, we're highlighting the work of Geffrey Davis, who will be joining us in Morgantown to teach the poetry workshop next week. Davis is the author of Revising the Storm (BOA Editions 2014), winner of the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize and a Hurston/Wright Legacy Award Finalist. His honors include fellowships from the Cave Canem Foundation and the Vermont Studio Center, the Anne Halley Poetry Prize, the Dogwood Prize in Poetry, the Wabash Prize for Poetry, the Leonard Steinberg Memorial/Academy of American Poets Prize, and nominations for The Pushcart Prize. His poems have been published by The Academy of American Poets, The Massachusetts Review, The New York Times Magazine and Ploughshares, among many others. He also co-authored, with poet F. Douglas Brown, the chapbook Begotten (URB Books 2016). A native of the Pacific Northwest, Davis is a faculty member of the MFA Program at the University of Arkansas.
