ABOUT KATIE eber
Katie Eber holds a B.A. in English Literature from Roanoke College (Class of ‘11) and is a 2014 graduate from the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at Fairfield University.
At Roanoke, Katie’s poetry earned her the 2011 Charles C. Wise Poetry Prize and, as part of her senior seminar’s fun-loving and witty team, won the annual English Department's Reindeer Games (which, as a result of that year's raucous competition, were discontinued shortly thereafter). She was also the recipient of the Trueben Award at Fairfield University.
As an education programs developer, Katie has been a part of teams at Connecticut Public, Thinkalong.org, PBS, and YWCA Hartford Region, and through partnerships has worked with Hartford Public Schools, Connecticut Library Consortium, NAMLE, Center for Media Literacy, and many other schools, universities, museums, and education organizations in Connecticut and around the world.
Katie enjoys good beer, good sandwiches, and advocating for widespread use of business hammocks. She resides in the shadow of the Metacomet Ridge in Wallingford, Connecticut, where she served as her town's second Poet Laureate.
