Congratulations, Jericho

Jericho Brown, Winship Distinguished Research Professor in Creative Writing and director of the Creative Writing Program at Atlanta's Emory University, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in poetry on May 4 for his most recent collection, “The Tradition.”

The Pulitzer Prize Board described Brown’s winning poems as “a collection of masterful lyrics that combine delicacy with historical urgency in their loving evocation of bodies vulnerable to hostility and violence.”
