David Masonâ€™s family goes back four or five generations in Colorado. His father grew up in Trinidad, his mother in Grand Junction. However, Mason was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington, and except for family visits did not spend an extended time in Colorado until he attended the Colorado College in the 1970s. After twenty years away from the West, living in New York, Pennsylvania, Greece and Minnesota, Mason returned to his alma mater to teach in 1998. He now co-directs the Creative Writing program at the Colorado College.
Mason has published three full-length books of poems to date, plus quite a few chapbooks and limited editions. He is co-editor of four major anthologies and the author of many dozens of poems, essays, reviews, translations, stories and memoirs. An advisory editor at the Hudson Review, the Sewanee Review and Divide, Masonâ€™s work can be found in The Nation, TLS, The Hudson Review, Poetry, The American Scholar and many other periodicals here and abroad. His poetry has been featured on Garrison Keillorâ€™s â€śWriterâ€™s Almanac,â€ť and he has been interviewed for other MPR and NPR programs. He remains committed to performance as a guide to the composition and teaching of poetry.
