MFA Faculty and Poet Victoria Chang Awarded Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award from the Poetry Society of America

The Poetry Society of America was founded in 1910, and is the nation’s oldest poetry organization. Their annual awards are among the most prestigious available to poets.

“The Poetry Society of America annual awards are always so competitive and thus I feel so honored to win one,” said Chang. “Honestly, I’ve always thought of the PSA awards as those awards that other people win and now that I see the finalist list, there are so many great poets that submit to these awards, I feel even more honored to have won.”

Chang has published four books of poems, a children’s book, and has her work widely represented in literary journals and anthologies. She won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2017, and her children’s book, Is Mommy? was named a NYT Notable Book.
