The Creative Writing Program is pleased to announce a reading with Diane Seuss!

Diane Seuss is the author of five books of poetry. Her most recent collection is frank: sonnets (Graywolf Press 2021), winner of the PEN/Voelcker Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, and the Pulitzer Prize. Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl, (Graywolf Press 2018) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Poetry. Four-Legged Girl (Graywolf Press 2015) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her sixth collection, Modern Poetry, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in 2024. Seuss is a 2020 Guggenheim Fellow. She received the John Updike Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2021. Seuss was raised by a single mother in rural Michigan, which she continues to call home.

Seuss is this year's Mohr Visiting Poet. Each year, the Creative Writing Program welcomes a distinguished poet to teach a Stanford writing seminar to undergraduates. Seuss' seminar will be The Occasions of Poetry: Formal Experimentations. These seminars are made possible with the generous support of Lawrence and Nancy Mohr.
