Kate Northrop

Kate Northrop grew up in humid Pennsylvania and she still appreciates, every summer day in Laramie, the glorious weather here.  She received her BA in the History of Art from the University of Pennsylvania and her MFA in Creative Writing / Poetry from the Iowa Writers Workshop.  Her recent full-length poetry collections are Things Are Disappearing Here (a New York Times Book Review Editors Choice) and Clean, both from Persea Books.   She is the recipient of fellowships from Yaddo and MacDowell, the Jeanette Haien Ballard Award, the Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Award, the Paumanock Award, the C & R Press Summer Tide Pool award.  This past spring she received an Ellbogen Award for Meritorious Teaching.
