Katharine Coles’ fifth collection, The Earth is Not Flat (Red Hen Press, 2013) was written under the auspices of a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers Program, which sent her to live for a month in Antarctica. Ten poems from that collection, translated by the poet Klaus Martens, appeared in June in the German journal Matrix. Other recent poems and nonfiction have appeared in Poetry, Image, The Seneca Review, and Crazyhorse among other places. She was a 2012-13 Guggenheim Fellow in poetry.
