Peter Streckfus is the author of two poetry books: Errings, winner of Fordham University Press’s 2013 POL Editor’s Prize, and The Cuckoo, which won the Yale Series of Younger Poets competition in 2003. Of his work, the American Academy of Arts and Letters has said, “In his two collections, Peter Streckfus has made a lyric poetry of the highest order: spacious, luminous, contemplative, filled with strange voyages and miniature epics—he is a seer, a visionary, and yet how effortless this work seems; at its center, a stillness as ardent and searching as anything within memory.”
His poems have appeared in journals such as The Chicago Review, The New Republic, Seattle Review, and Slate. Streckfus is on the faculty of the Creative Writing Program at George Mason University.
