Professor of English Jennifer Clarvoe came to Kenyon in 1990. Her first book of poems, "Invisible Tender," won the Poets Out Loud Prize and the prestigious Kate Tufts Discovery Award for "a first or early work of genuine promise."
In 2002-2003, Clarvoe was awarded the Rome Prize in Literature by the American Academy of Arts and Letters, which allowed her to spend the year writing at the American Academy in Rome. Her second book of poems, "Counter-Amores," was published by the University of Chicago Press. She will read a mix of old and new work, including poems for a third manuscript-in-progress.
