Katy Didden is a poet who is interested in the relationship between text and image, the history of the elegy, and creative writing and the environment. Her first book, The Glacier’s Wake, won the Lena-Miles Wever Todd Prize from Pleiades Press, and was published in 2013. Her new manuscript of mixed-media erasure poems, “Ore Choir: The Lava on Iceland” (a collaboration with illustrator Kevin Tseng), is forthcoming in November 2022 with Tupelo Press. She has published work in journals such as Ecotone, The Spoon River Poetry Review, Image, Poetry, 32 Poems, and The Kenyon Review, and my poems have been featured on Verse Daily and Poetry Daily. In 2018, she participated in Banff Research in Culture’s Beyond Anthropocene residency, where she collaborated with a group of scholars, scientists, and artists to create the Almanac for the Beyond (Tropic Editions, 2019).
