A graphic artist and painter, Kate Greenstreet is the author of the poetry collections case sensitive (2006) and The Last 4 Things (2009), which she published with a DVD of short films based on the book. Her chapbooks include Learning the Language (2005), Rushes (2007), This is why I hurt you (2008), and CALLED (2011).

In case sensitive, a female character, driving across the U.S. and writing in a journal, channels and intertwines her impressions of numerous other voices, including the work of other writers (Lorine Niedecker), of artists (Agnes Martin and Louise Bourgeois), a biography of Marie Curie, and a mystery story.

Greenstreet has received a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship, and her poems have been published in the Colorado Review, Fence, VOLT, and other journals.
