Bobby Rogers
Professor of English

The Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize from the University of Pittsburgh Press is considered one of the top 10 prizes in American poetry. Professor of English Bobby C. Rogers has been a finalist for this prestigious award a number of times, but learned in 2009 that he was named the winner for his work tentatively entitled "Paper Anniversary"

The award includes not only recognition, but also publication of Rogers' work. It is the culmination of several years of waiting for the best publication opportunity. Rogers began his quest for this result during a faculty research leave in 2005.

Rogers also has been highly successful in the classroom. His creative writing students have been accepted for graduate study in prestigious Master of Fine Arts programs such as New York University, Boston University, University of Virginia and Ohio State University.
