Heather Christle was born in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and earned a BA from Tufts University and an MFA from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. She is the author of The Difficult Farm
(2009); The Trees The Trees
(2011), which won the Believer
Poetry Award; and What Is Amazing
(2012). Christle described her third collection in an interview: “What Is Amazing
begins somewhat exuberantly, moves through domesticity and desire, and ends up with something like acceptance of the world as it is. It is occasionally very funny.”
A former creative writing fellow in poetry at Emory University, Christle has taught at Emory, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and Sarah Lawrence. She is the Web editor of jubilat
magazine and a frequent writer-in-residence at the Juniper Summer Writing Institute.
