Black Mountain Institute
Joshua Kryah reads from We Are Starved, his second book.
Joshua Kryah holds an MFA degree from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop as well as a PhD from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he was the Poetry Schaeffer Fellow. Joshua’s first book, Glean, explores the dynamics inherent in a pursuit of faith of something that can never be fully realized nor expressed, earning him the 2005 Nightboat Books Poetry Prize. His newest collection, We Are Starved, details his hardscrabble upbringing in St. Louis, Missouri. His poetry has also been published in several journals including Shenandoah, Denver Quarterly, FIELD, The Iowa Review, and Ploughshares. Joshua is also the poetry editor of Witness, the literary journal of UNLV’s Black Mountain Institute.
