Keelan has taught in many writing programs, including the University of Iowa's Writers Workshop; the University of Alabama, where she held the Coal Royalty Chair in Poetry; Boston College; Rhodes College; and the University of Nevada, where she is a Barrick Distinguished Scholar. Her honors include the Beatrice Hawley Award from Alice James Books and the Jerome Shestack prize from the American Poetry Review.
