Jenny Xie’s first book Eye Level (2018) received the Walt Whitman Award from the Academy of American Poets and the Holmes National Poetry Prize from Princeton University; was a finalist for the National Book Award and the PEN Open Book Award.  Her chapbook Nowhere to Arrive (2017) was awarded the Drinking Gourd Prize. She has taught creative writing at Princeton and NYU; she is now a faculty member at Bard College. Her poetry is subtle, brilliant, philosophically complex, and unlike any other poetry you’ve ever read.
