E. Kristin Anderson 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. Once upon a time she worked for The New Yorker magazine, but she decided being a grown up just wasn’t for her. Currently living in Austin, Texas, Kristin is an assistant editor at Hunger Mountain for their YA and Children's section and a contributing editor at Found Poetry Review. Kristin is the co-editor of the DEAR TEEN ME anthology (Zest Books, 2012), based on the website of the same name. As a poet she has been published worldwide in around two dozen literary journals from the UK indie-queen Fuselit, to Cordite in Australia to the US’ Post Road and the Cimarron Review to the sci fi mag Asimov’s Science Fiction, and she has two forthcoming chapbooks: A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE (Red Bird Chapbooks) and A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY (Finishing Line Press). She hand-wrote her first trunk book at sixteen. It was about the band Hanson and may or may not still be in a notebook at her parents’ house. Kristin’s work appears in the anthology COIN OPERA II, a collection of poems about video games from Sidekick Books and FUTUREDAZE, an anthology of YA SciFi from Underwords. She is represented by Christina Hogrebe at the Jane Rotrosen Agency.
