Off the Shelf: Jeb Livingood

March 23, 2009 — Jeb Livingood, lecturer of English, co-editor, with Mark Strand, "Best New Poets 2008: 50 New Poems from Emerging Writers." University of Virginia Press.

"Putting together an annual anthology is a tremendous amount of work, and you always upset a few people with the final choices," Livingood said. "But the payoff is getting to know 50 new poets each year, most of whom you soon see in print again."
