Nathaniel Perry's first collection of poems, Nine Acres (Copper Canyon, 2011), won the American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize. He is the editor of the Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review and lives with his family in rural Southside Virginia.
From its inception in prohibition, through depression and war, in prosperity and peace, the Virginia Quarterly Review has been a haven—and home—for the best essayists, fiction writers, and poets, seeking contributors from every section of the United States and abroad. It has not limited itself to any special field. No topic has been alien: literary, public affairs, the arts, history, the economy. If it could be approached through essay or discussion, poetry or prose, VQR has covered it.Virginia Quarterly Review
