Danniel Schoonebeek’s first book of poems, American Barricade (YesYes Books, 2014), was named one of the year’s ten standout debuts by Poets & Writers and was called “a groundbreaking first book that stands to influence its author’s generation” by Boston Review. Maggie Nelson called American Barricade “the debut of a fierce talent and vision” and C.D. Wright wrote that the book is “explosively and assiduously crafted.” His second book is a travelogue called C’est la guerre (2015) and his third book, Trébuchet, was selected by Kevin Prufer for the 2015 National Poetry Series.

Schoonebeek’s work has appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry magazine, Tin House, Iowa Review, Fence, BOMB, the Brooklyn Rail, jubilat, Guernica, and elsewhere. He has received awards and honors from the Millay Colony for the Arts, Poets House, the Ace Hotel, and Oregon State University. Schoonebeek hosts the Hatchet Job reading series in Brooklyn and has served as editor of the PEN Poetry Series since 2013. In 2015, he was awarded a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation
