Nick Pierce, a 2014 alumnus of the Department of English and former arts writer for Landmark Arts, will read selections from his New Criterion Prize winning collection, In Transit.

He received an MFA in Poetry from the University of Florida. During his MFA, he taught creative writing and worked on the school’s literary journal, Subtropics. His own poems have appeared in The Adroit Journal, Birmingham Poetry Review, The Hopkins Review, and Smartish Pace, among other places. A resident of Salt Lake City, he’s now working on a PhD in Poetry at the University of Utah. In Transit is his first book.
