Altoona English teacher’s award-winning poem featured online


ALTOONA, Pa. — “The Internet of Things,” an award-winning poem by Penn State Altoona English professor Erin Murphy, was featured on Rattle magazine’s website this week. The poem won the 2021 Rattle Poetry Prize Readers’ Choice Award of $5,000 and was also published in the journal’s print issue.

Murphy has also published new poetry and non-fiction in several peer-reviewed literary journals.

Five poems from his forthcoming book “Taxonomies” were recently published in One Art: A Journal of Poetry. The poems are demi-sonnets, a form invented by Murphy.

One Art also announced that two of Murphy’s poems, “Revision Lesson” and “Hide-and-Seek,” were among the journal’s 25 most-read poems of 2021.

A series of half-sonnets based on Google’s auto-fill sentences were recently published in Sledgehammer.

His essay “pər(-ə)l”, whose title is a phonetic spelling, appears in the current issue of Superstition Review.

Murphy’s poems “The Strip Mall of Second Chances”, “Tanya the Phlebotomist”, “Concealed” and “Women’s Work” were published in February in New World Writing.

His poem “Iambic Pentameter” appears in Dialogist.

Murphy is the author or editor of 13 books, including two to be published in 2022: “Taxonomies” and “Human Resources”. She and her colleague Todd Davis will read excerpts from their new poetry books at 7 p.m. on March 29 in the Titelman study at the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts.
