We are excited to announce that poet Diane Seuss will join the MFA faculty for the spring 2020 semester as a Visiting Lecturer and Writer. Diane Seuss’s most recent collection, Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl, was released in 2018 by Graywolf Press and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Poetry; Four-Legged Girl, published in 2015 by Graywolf Press, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Wolf Lake, White Gown Blown Open received the Juniper Prize and was published in 2010 by the University of Massachusetts Press. Her fifth collection, Frank: Sonnets, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in 2021. Seuss was Writer in Residence at Kalamazoo College, faculty member for the Stonecoast Low-Residency MFA Program, the MacLean Distinguished Visiting Professor at Colorado College, and a visiting professor in the Helen Zell Writers’ Program at the University of Michigan. She was raised by a single mother in rural Michigan, which she continues to call home.
