Kristin Sanders is a feminist writer and educator. She is the author of the forthcoming full-length collection, CUNTRY (Trembling Pillow Press, 2017), and two chapbooks, Orthorexia (Dancing Girl Press, 2012) and This is a map of their watching me (BOAAT Press, 2015). She holds an MFA from Louisiana State University and a BA from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. She has taught composition and creative writing at Loyola University, New Orleans; Louisiana State University; Belmont University; and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Currently a poetry editor at the New Orleans Review and a regular contributor to Weird Sister, she has also been book review editor at The Southern Review.
As an English instructor at Loyola University, she discovered how few of her students could list favorite female authors or books written by women. To help young adults gain access to the world of contemporary women writers that is so underrepresented in high school and college classrooms, she created a website of informal, first-person book reviews, Books I Read By Women.
