Jon Davis





Jon Davis is the author of four full-length collections of poetry: Improbable Creatures (Grid Books, forthcoming), Preliminary Report (Copper Canyon Press, 2010), Scrimmage of Appetite, for which he was honored with a Lannan Literary Award in Poetry, and Dangerous Amusements, for which he received the Peter I.B. Lavan Prize from the Academy of American Poets. He is also the author of five limited-edition chapbooks, including Thelonious Sphere (Q Ave. Press, 2014) and Loving Horses (Palace Press 2014), and a limited edition art book in collaboration with the artist Jamison Chas Banks, Heteronymy: An Anthology (La Nana Creek Press, 2015). A new collection of poems, The Many-Body Problem, is nearly complete. Dayplaces, which Davis translated from the Arabic with the author, Iraqi poet Naseer Hassan, is forthcoming from Tebot Bach Press in 2017. Davis’s short stories have appeared in recent issues of The Stockholm Review, Monkeybicycle, Flash, Versal, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, failbetter, and the anthology Flash Fiction Funny. For three years he taught screenwriting for the ABC/Disney Summer Film & Television Workshops at IAIA. Short films made from his screenplays have played in festivals across North America. He is director of the low residency MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Sometimes, he shows up as this guy, Chuck Calabreze. Nobody knows why.
