21 Book Salute: Poetry

A list of alum publications to mark 21 years of the MFA in Creative Writing

From Apps to Youngdahl, here are MFA graduates who have published full-length poetry collections, one book from each (several have more than one publication). You'll find that the list could not be constrained by arbitrary limits (such as "21"). Let us know if we've missed any others (at sutt0063@umn.edu). Future add: Roy Guzmán (2017) this winter announced his debut collection is forthcoming from Graywolf Press.
