Christian Wiman to Leave Poetry Magazine

Poetry magazine editor Christian Wiman will depart in June after ten years leading the magazine. He is leaving to teach at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Yale Divinity School.

Here’s more from the release: “After being named editor in 2003, shortly after the magazine received a gift of nearly $200 million from philanthropist Ruth Lilly, he increased circulation threefold; oversaw a complete redesign of the magazine; began publishing essays from well-known writers, musicians, and other non-poets about their relationship to poetry in ‘The View from Here’ section; and commissioned long-form journalism from respected poets, among other accomplishments.”

The magazine won two National Magazine Awards in 2011. He has published three books of poetry, most recently Every Riven Thing.

The magazine will look for his sucessor this spring.
