TERRANCE HAYES’ debut collection of poems, Muscular Music, won the Kate Tufts Discovery Award and a Whiting Emerging Writers Award, and his second collection, Hip Logic, was a National Poetry Series selection. His work has appeared in numerous anthologies of emerging writers, including American Poetry: The Next Generation and Giant Steps: The New Generation of African American Writers, and in journals such as Fence, Harvard Review, Ploughshares, and The Southern Review. He teaches in the Creative Writing Department at Carnegie Mellon University and is on the faculty at the Stonecoast MFA low residency program.
