Artist Profile - Katie Prince
Katie Prince is a poet, essayist, and graphic designer. She earned her MFA from the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2015, and in the spring of 2017, she served as artist-in-residence at Klaustrið, in Iceland’s Fljótsdalur valley. Her first manuscript TELL THIS TO THE UNIVERSE has been named a finalist or semifinalist for the 2019 National Poetry Series, the 2018 St. Lawrence Book Award, the 2019 Hudson Prize, and the 2019 Philip Levine Prize; her writing has been published in Electric Literature, The Adroit Journal, Poetry Northwest, and North American Review, among others. She lives in Seattle, where she directs the marketing and communications efforts for Hugo House.
Katie received 2019 GAP Award funding for her second manuscript, begun in relative isolation in East Iceland, which seeks to examine our inner drives toward gore, beastliness, and the uncanny. The grant will fund a solo retreat in the near-wilderness, where she will have the space, time, and eerie silence necessary to polish existing poems and bring new ones to life.
