Jan Beatty’s sixth book, The Body Wars, was published in 2020 by the University of Pittsburgh Press.

A chapbook, Skydog, is forthcoming from Lefty Blondie Press. Other books include Jackknife: New and Collected Poems (Paterson Prize), The Switching/Yard, Red Sugar, Boneshaker, Mad River (Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize).
