Jessica Garratt is the author of Fire Pond, winner of the Agha Shahid Ali Prize in Poetry and published by the University of Utah Press in 2009. Her work has also appeared, or is forthcoming, in Colorado Review, Western Humanities Review, The Missouri Review, Shenandoah, and other journals. She has spent the last year or so working toward completion of her second collection of poems, thanks in part to the support of the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, ART342, and the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians.
Begun in 1915 and located on the campus of Southern Methodist University, Southwest Review is the third oldest, continuously published literary quarterly in the United States. We try to discover works by new writers and publish them beside those of more established authors. Selections from Southwest Review have been reprinted in volumes of Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, Best American Short Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, New Stories from the South, and elsewhere.Southwest Review
