“The rising poetry stars? Well, you know there was someone we published just the other day [in The New Yorker] whose work I really like. Michael Dickman his name is. . . . Nothing makes me happier than the thought that there is going to be somebody coming down the road who is going to be scintillating.” -Paul Muldoon, The New Yorker

Mary Szybist is one of only two poets in the country selected by the U.S. Poet Laureate, Kay Ryan, for the 2009 Witter Bynner Fellowship. Ryan said, "Mary Szybist's lovely musical touch is light and exact enough to catch the weight and grind of love. This is a hard paradox to master..." -Library of Congress
