Ed Skoog

Ed Skoog

Ed's poetry collection, Mister Skylight, appeared in 2009 from Copper Canyon Press. He was born in Topeka, Kansas and attended Kansas State University and the University of Montana. Among his awards are the Lyric Poetry Award from the Poetry Society of America and the Marble Faun Award from the Pirate’s Alley William Faulkner Society. He was the Jennie McKean Moore Writer-in-Washington Fellow at George Washington University in 2009-2010.

"Ed Skoog's poetry is so ambitious it takes my breath away. In it, he creates dense narratives, sees patterns, sees dissimilitudes, knows how to fishtail with images and turn with ease, knows how to braid pop culture into small personal melancholies and into large generosities.”
