Ed Ochester

Ed Ochester’s latest book of poems, “Sugar Run Road” (Autumn House Press) was released in 2015. He is the editor of the Pitt Poetry Series at the University of Pittsburgh Press, and edited American Poetry Now (Univ. of Pittsburgh Press, 2007). He is also the general editor for the Drue Heinz Literature Prize for short fiction at the press. Educated at Cornell, Harvard, and the University of Wisconsin, Ochester has taught at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and was for twenty years the director of the writing program at the University of Pittsburgh. He was twice elected president of AWP. He lives, as he says, “in the sticks” outside Pittsburgh.
