Kate Wright, a third-year MFA student, grew up in Western Pennsylvania and received a BA and MA in English from Penn State University. A poet, she explores the relationship between environment and body in her work. Her poems have appeared in Rust + Moth, Rogue Agent, Up the Staircase Quarterly, Ghost City Review, and elsewhere.
In her free time, Kate enjoys trail running in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and has competed in a few trail races, ranging in distance from 7 to 17 miles. A college wrestling enthusiast (like any true Pennsylvanian), she is elated to study at Cael Sanderson’s Alma Mater, and hopes to attend more matches this year.
