Another emertia professor, Heather Ross Miller, has one poem in the anthology while former visiting professor Claudia Emerson has two. Two Shenandoah contributing editors (Betty Adcock with one poem and Fred Chappell with two) are also represented. Smith was the 2006 winner of the Southern Poetry Review’s Guy Clark Prize for his poem, Planatation of the Mad.

    Hats off to each W&L bard
    We hold them in most high regard
    We all could do worse
    Than practice our verse
    And 90 per cent of it discard.
    (But not to SHENANDOAH or THE SOUTHERN POETRY REVIEW!)
