Since arriving at West Virginia University, he has been named a Benedum Distinguished Scholar, The Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teacher, The Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Researcher (twice), and The Carnegie Foundation/CASE United State Teacher of the Year for West Virginia. He was the founding director of the MFA Program in Creative Writing at West Virginia University, where he is currently Professor of English; he also directs the MFA Program in Poetry at New England College. During the spring semester of 2008 he served as Poet in Residence at Bucknell University. Harms lives in Morgantown, West Virginia, with his wife Amanda, and their children.

Review:

"At the noisy fiesta of contemporary American poetry, James Harms refuses to speak in tongues, wear a goofy hat, or drink upside down tequila shots. . . . His coolly meditative poems offer up smart and lyrical commentaries upon contemporary social scenes, and manage to make large points without ever raising their voices." (Campbell McGrath)
