National Book Festival

David Mason's two collections of poetry, "The Country I Remember" (Story Line Press, 1996) and "The Buried Houses" (Story Line Press, 1991), have earned him honors such as the Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize and the Poetry Society of America's Alice Fay Di Castagnola Award. He is also a formidable critic, contributing to such journals as "The Hudson Review," "The Sewanee Review," and "The New Criterion." Mason has collected his essays in "The Poetry of Life and the Life of Poetry" (Story Line Press, 2000), and co-edited the influential anthology "Rebel Angels: 25 Poets of the New Formalism" (Story Line Press, 1996). Mason has been a Fulbright Writer-in-Residence in Greece, and currently teaches at Colorado College.
