E. Kristin Anderson is a Pushcart-nominated poet and author who grew up in Westbrook, Maine and is a graduate of Connecticut College. She has a fancy diploma that says “B.A. in Classics,” which makes her sound smart but has not helped her get any jobs in Ancient Rome. Kristin is the co-editor of Dear Teen Me, an anthology based on the popular website. Her poetry has been published worldwide in many magazines and anthologies and she is the author of three chapbooks: A Jab of Deep Urgency (Finishing Line Press) and A Guide for the Practical Abductee (Red Bird Chapbooks) and Acoustic Battery Life (forthcoming from ELJ Publications). She is an online editor at Hunger Mountain and a contributing editor at Found Poetry Review. Once upon a time she worked at The New Yorker. She now lives in Austin, TX where she is currently working on a full-length collection of erasure poems from women’s and teen magazines. She blogs at EKristinAnderson.com.
Creative Nonfiction Writer, Poet
I was born in Krum, Texas. I’ve published two books of poetry, The Glass Children (The University of Georgia Press) and Success Stories (Limestone Books). I’m also the author of Catholic by Choice (Loyola Press). My poems and essays have been published in the New Yorker, Poetry, Hudson Review, Sun Magazine, Denver Quarterly, and Image Journal—Good Letters. I’m president of a small but sturdy business writing agency in Austin, Texas, where I live with my wife and two sons. I have never taken a writing workshop, though I have taught quite a few.
