Jeffrey Harrison has been awarded a fellowship from the Bogliasco Foundation for the fall of 2014 and will be spending a month at the Luguria Study Center in Bogliasco, Italy.

In April 2012, Tupelo Press announced that Jeffrey Harrison's fifth collection of poetry, Into Daylight, won the Dorset Prize.

Selected by final judge Tom Sleigh, the book will be published by Tupelo in the spring of 2014. Poems from the collection have appeared or are forthcoming in AGNI online, American Poetry Review, The Hudson Review, The New England Review, The New Republic, Ploughshares, The Yale Review, and other magazines, as well as in Ted Kooser's American Life in Poetry series. More information.

Waywiser Press has reprinted The Names of Things.

Incomplete Knowledge made the BookSense top ten list for 2007 as well as the Poetry Foundation’s best seller list and was one of two runners-up for the 2008 Poets' Prize, which was won by A. E. Stallings for Hapax. All three of the finalists got very strong support, out of a field of more than forty nominated books.

Jeffrey Harrison is available to give readings, interviews, visit schools, or teach workshops; contact by email: jeffrey.harrison@comcast.net
