10/2017 – Jeffrey Schultz (MFA Poetry ’03) is a rare two-time winner of the National Poetry Series, receiving this prestigious award in 2013 for What Ridiculous Things We Could Ask of Each Other and again in 2016 for Civil Twilight. A new review of Civil Twilight is online now at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/fierce-register-the-poetry-of-jeffrey-schultz_us_59d113fae4b034ae778d4b7e.
In his review of the collection, Ben Evans (MFA Poetry ‘13) praises the “fierce register” of Schultz’s work: “These poems double as historical and philosophical arguments. They go forth with serious purpose and succeed in offering both aesthetic and intellectual fulfillment.”
Jeff is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at Pepperdine/Seaver College in Malibu, California, where he served as Interim Director of Creative Writing (2014-2015). Ben is editor of Fogged Clarity (foggedclarity.com).
