Scott Harney

Scott Harney (1955-2019) was a practicing poet who, aside from one early appearance in the Somerville Community News, did not publish during his lifetime. He was born in the old Otis Hospital in East Cambridge, and spent some of his last months a few blocks away in Spaulding Hospital Cambridge, the setting for "At the Hospital of the Holy Ghost." His collection, The Blood of San Gennaro: Selected Poems, will be published in 2020 by Arrowsmith Press.
