PHILIP SCHULTZ
Pulitzer Prize-winning Poet

“Philip Schultz’s poems have long since earned their own place in American poetry. His stylistic trademarks are his great emotional directness and his intelligent haranguing—of god, the reader, and himself. He is one of the least affected of American poets, and one of the fiercest.” —Tony Hoagland

One of American poetry’s longtime masters of the art, Philip Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and the founder/director of The Writers Studio, a private school for fiction and poetry writing based in New York City. He is the author of several collections of poetry, including Failure (Harcourt, 2007), winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize. These poems give voice to failures of many kinds and yet they are full of tenderness, empathy, and heartbreaking honesty, giving equal praise to the joy of life.  

Please feel free to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic dinner as you make yourself at home in the beautiful setting of the Hill-Stead Museum and gardens. 

 Admission is $10/person; young people 18 and under free.
