Hi friends & co.,

My name is Elisa. I’m a fourth year ABD PhD candidate in poetry, I teach creative writing and college composition, have two adorable cats and just recently discovered the English grammar concept of “the dummy it” which I feel compelled to tell everyone about. I won’t bore you here, but there will be a post forthcoming…

When I’m not poeming, I’m probably sitting at my desk planning poems, falling into sundry researching rabbit holes or pretending I’m capable of cryptography (spoiler: I’m really not).

Back to poems– you can find my most recent poems in the following glorious publications: The JournalBlackbirdRHINO PoetryWest Branch and Boxcar Poetry Review, with new poems forthcoming in 2017 from such fabulous venues as Indiana Review and Emerge Literary Journal.

By the by: Are you having a reading? Need a poet for a poetic emergency or planned poetic situation? Drop me a line at elisakarbin[at]gmail[dot]com or click here to fill in a handy contact form!

Thanks for stopping by. Stick around, read some poems and feel free to reach out with any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you!

–Elisa
