A 1999 recipient of an NEA fellowship in poetry, Leon Stokesbury was also the 1996 winner of the esteemed Poet’s Prize for his book, Autumn Rhythm: New and Selected Poems. He talks about this work collected over his 30 year writing career, and how he chose to shape this critically acclaimed book, which poet Pattiann Rogers has described as “both ribald and tender, rough and full of risk, yet lyrical and touching.”
