Wesley McNair has twice been invited to read his poetry by the Library of Congress, served five times on the jury for the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, received the PEN New England Award for Literary Excellence in Poetry, and was honored with a United States Artists Fellowship as one of America’s “finest living artists.”
Announcement: McNair is Maine’s current Poet Laureate!
“Because he is a true poet, [McNair’s] New England is unlimited. Whole lives fill small lines, real to this poet and real to us.”
-Donald Hall, Harvard Book Review
