Quick Stats

Geffrey Davis holds degrees from Oregon State University and The Pennsylvania State University.  His work has appeared in Crazyhorse, Hayden’s Ferry Review, The Massachusetts Review, Mississippi Review, Nimrod, [PANK], and Sycamore Review, among others.

Revising the Storm (BOA Editions, 2014), is Davis’s first book of poetry, selected by Dorianne Laux for the 2013 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. His awards also include the Anne Halley Poetry Prize, the Dogwood Prize in Poetry, the Wabash Prize for Poetry, the Leonard Steinberg Memorial/Academy of American Poets Prize, nominations for the Pushcart Prize, and fellowships from the Cave Canem Foundation and Penn State’s Institute for the Arts and Humanities. Part of his work as a literary citizen involves promoting the poetry of others. To this end, he co-created and co-edits the online journal Toe Good Poetry.

Davis considers the South Puget Sound “home”—though he’s been raised by much more of the Pacific Northwest.
