Born in Albany, Georgia, D.A. Powell received an MA at Sonoma State University and an MFA at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. His fourth book, "Chronic," won the prestigious Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, the 2009 Northern California Book Award, and the 2009 California Book Award. He is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow. Powell is the author, along with the poet David Trinidad, of "By Myself, An Autobiography." His first three collections of poetry are "Tea" (1998), "Lunch" (2000), and "Cocktails" (2004). "Lunch" was a finalist for the National Poetry Series, and "Cocktails" was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry. Powell is known for his syntactically inventive, longer eight or ten-beat lines in poems that are often untitled. He has served as the Briggs-Copeland Lecturer at Harvard and has also taught at Columbia University and the University of San Francisco. Powell has been awarded the Lyric Poetry Award from the Poetry Society of America, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and a Paul Engle Fellowship from the James Michener Foundation. His poems have been featured in the Norton anthology "American Hybrid" (2009) and "Best American Poetry" (2008).
