Brad Richard's poems have appeared in American Letters & Commentary, Black Warrior Review, The Iowa Review, and North American Review, among others. A native of Texas and Louisiana, Richard received his B.A. from the University of Iowa and his M.F.A. from Washington University in St. Louis. He teaches creative writing at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts-Riverfront.

"Whatever inhabits me at this moment/ goes on doing what I do' proclaims one of Richard's densely textured interrogations of the universe. And indeed that universe is so palpable here because created as much as discovered by an intelligence insatiable in its inquisitions and disquisitions. The reigning paradox of Habitations is that, searching for a domicile, it reveals home's continuous presence in any moment of Richard's miraculous existence." -Peter Cooley, author of Sacred Conversations.
