Kwame Dawes

My name is Kwame Dawes. I have published many volumes of poetry.  Most recently, my collection Nebraska, appeared with the University of Nebraska Press.  I am editor of the literary journal, Prairie Schooner, and I direct the African Poetry Book Fund.  I live and work in Lincoln, Nebraska, where I am Chancellor’s Professor of English and Glenna Luschei Editor of Prairie Schooner. I am grateful for the awards and recognitions I have received over the years for my art and my service to the arts.
