Kait Quinn is a legal assistant by day and a prolific poet by night. She studied creative writing at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX and continues her poetry education through courses and workshops such as Megan Falley’s “Poems That Don’t Suck” and Carrie Fountain’s “Leap & Practice.”
Her work has been published in Reed Magazine, Watershed Review, Anti-Heroin Chic, Chestnut Review, and other literary journals and anthologies.
Kait released her debut poetry collection, A Time for Winter, in February 2019 and has published three books since, including her most recent collection, Poems of August (2021).
Kait’s poetry touches on such topics as depression, anxiety, relationships, heartbreak, self-care, and healing. She often weaves nature into her poems and loves creating intricate, visceral imagery that hits readers in all the senses. She is currently fascinated with writing nonets and deep-diving into her late teen/young adult romances and traumas.
When she is not writing poetry, Kait spends her time reading, singing, baking banana bread muffins, and binge watching shows on Netflix. She currently lives in Minneapolis with her partner, their regal cat Spart, and their very polite Aussie mix Jesse.
