Daniel BoschLecturer

California-born poet and translator Daniel Bosch is the first member of his family to complete a college degree. He took a B.A. in literature at New College of Florida, where he focused late 20th-Century American Poetry and wrote a thesis on the early poems of John Berryman. In graduate school at Rice University and Boston University, Daniel studied with scholar and translator Edward Snow, poet and translator Richard Howard, and poet and playwright Derek Walcott.

Daniel has taught expository writing, critical thinking, literature, and verse composition at Harvard University (where he was awarded the Henry Dunster Prize in Tutoring and served as Poetry Editor for Harvard Review), Tufts University, Boston University, and Merrimack College. For eight years he directed the Writing Studio at Walnut Hill School for the Arts, where his colleagues awarded him the E.E. Ford Prize for Faculty Excellence; in 2011, Daniel’s work at the Writing Studio was celebrated with a Presidential Recognition Award from the U.S. Department of Education citing him as one of the top twenty arts educators in the country. In 2019 he was named winner of Emory’s student-nominated Crystal Apple Award in Small Seminar Education. From 2013 until 2020, he was Senior Editor at Berfrois.com.
