“Dougherty has a reputation for giving very lively and inspiring readings, so we were pleased that he was available this fall,” said Dr. Nancy McCabe, associate professor of writing and director of the writing program.
Dougherty is currently on tour from September through December, giving fall readings from “Scything Grace.” Other tour locations include Providence, R.I.; Niagara Falls, N.Y.; and New York City.
He has traveled across North America and Europe, performing at numerous venues and universities. His book “Sasha Sings the Laundry on the Line” was a finalist for the Milton Kessler Poetry Prize. He has received two Pennsylvania Council for the Arts Fellowships for Poetry in 2006 and 2004, and he also won the 2000 Pinyon Press Poetry prize.
