kristin fogdallKristin Fogdall, poet, Exeter

Kristin Fogdall was born in Seattle, Washington and received her A.B. in Theatre and Writing at Mount Holyoke College and her M.A. in Creative Writing from Boston University. Currently, she is the Director of Alumni/ae Affairs and Development Communications at Phillips Exeter Academy and has published poems since 1995 in The New Republic, Poetry, New England Review, Partisan Review, and other journals. Her manuscript collection was a finalist for the National Poetry Series in 2000, and she is the recipient of an Emerging New England Artist Award from the St. Botolph's Foundation in Boston.

"My poems almost always begin in observation," describes Fogdall. "Perhaps it is a landscape, an obscure word or historical fact, but each poem eventually responds to some experience and probes beneath the surface. More and more I think I am trying to achieve a sort of mythic or spiritual poetry than nevertheless can be relevant in this post-modern, skeptical age. I am interested in rescuing and transforming old symbols and stories."
