Gary Jackson Named One of 2013’s “New American Poets”

Three cheers for new poetry professor Gary Jackson on being named a “New American Poet”–one of the Poetry Society of America’s coveted distinctions for emerging poets!  Jackson was selected by poet Jennifer Chang, who praises his first poetry collection Missing You, Metropolis. She writes, “These poems effervesce with the music of rage, seriocomic perspicacity, and sly social critique and reveal the shrewd study Jackson has made of comic books, capturing the scope of the epic in small vivid boxes of human song.”
