Judson Mitcham’s work has been widely published in literary journals, including Poetry, Harper’s, Georgia Review, Hudson Review, and Southern Review. He has been the recipient of an NEA Fellowship in Creative Writing, as well as a Pushcart Prize. He is the only writer to win the Townsend Prize for Fiction twice–for his novels The Sweet Everlasting and Sabbath Creek. His most recent book is A Little Salvation: Poems Old and New, published by the University of Georgia Press. Mitcham is the current poet laureate of Georgia. In 2013 he was inducted into the Georgia Writers’ Hall of Fame. He will respond to a (re)reading of Wise Blood and will read from his own fiction.
