Adam Fitzgerald is the author of the poetry collections The Late Parade (2013) and George Washington (2016). The founding editor of poetry journal Maggy, he is currently a contributing editor for Literary Hub where he regularly features and interviews contemporary poets.
Born in New York City, Fitzgerald grew up in New Jersey and earned a BA from Boston College, an MA from Boston University’s Editorial Institute, and an MFA from Columbia University. About his work, David Kirby in the New York Times Sunday Book Review has written: “his poems are drunk on both word and allusion and are therefore doubly tipsy … The result is a poetry as lush as any of Keats’s odes, as textured as a corridor in the Louvre.” His poems, essays and interviews have appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry, Boston Review, Granta, the New Republic, and elsewhere.
Fitzgerald teaches creative writing and literature at Rutgers University and New York University, and previously at Columbia University and The New School. In 2014, with poets Timothy Donnelly and Dorothea Lasky he founded The Ashbery Home School, a biannual poetry and arts conference for students of all ages. He lives in the East Village in Manhattan.
