Each semester Vanderbilt Creative Writing and the Gertrude &  Harold S. Vanderbilt Visiting Writers Series brings writers to campus to read from their work and visit classes.

His poems have appeared in American Poetry ReviewThe Believer, The New Yorker, The Nation, The New Republic, The Paris Review, Poetry, Poetry London, and elsewhere, as well as in the Best American Poetry and Pushcart Prize anthologies.
