Joanna Klink earned an MFA from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. Her collections of poetry include They Are Sleeping (2000), Circadian (2007), Raptus (2010), Excerpts from a Secret Prophecy (2015), and The Nightfields (2020). Her work has been included in numerous anthologies, most recently Resistance, Rebellion, Life: 50 Poems Now (2017) and The Penguin Anthology of 20th Century American Poetry (2011). Of her work, Klink has said: “In poems I am trying to find my bearings through a world that at times feels remote and inchoate and struck blank with noise. I would like to place myself in a field of deep attention, and out of that attention come to feel and regard with more acute understanding what is there. I write to be less hopelessly myself, to sense something more expansive than where I speak from.”
