One of the great things to come out of our trip down to the New Orleans Bookfair was discovering Ed Skoog, whose work we’ll be featuring in our next issue.
Ed Skoog grew up in Topeka, Kansas, and has lived in Montana, Louisiana, and Southern California, and now lives in Seattle. He has been a Bread Loaf Fellow, Writer-in-Residence at the Richard Hugo House, and the Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Residence at George Washington University. He has taught at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, Tulane, Fishtrap, and Idyllwild Arts. His poems have appeared in Paris Review, The New Republic, Poetry, Narrative, Ploughshares, Tin House, and elsewhere. His ﬁrst book is Mister Skylight (Copper Canyon Press, 2009).
