appeared in FIELD, The Gettysburg Review, Harvard Review, and in the online journals La Petite Zine
and Memorious. A native of Michigan, Gottshall now lives in Vermont and teaches poetry at Middlebury
College.

“Karin Gottshall’s poems are compelling invitations to an interior landscape that feels
relentlessly surprising. Her poems contain an attention to melancholy that’s startling for
its loveliness; here the darkness is tender if unsettling, and the observations feel vital
and new.”

–Allison Titus
