Krista Cox is a poet, editor and activist based in northern Indiana (though she dreams of a life in Akureyri).
She’s an intersectional feminist, anti-racist activist, atheist, and vegan, to give as many folks as possible reasons to dislike her right off the bat, cuz why not?
Krista’s poetry appears in many fine journals. She’s the Managing Editor of Doubleback Review, a fledgling online journal that features work previously published at now-defunct journals, and at The Wardrobe, which features recently-published books written by women, nonbinary, and genderqueer authors. In addition, she’s an Associate Poetry Editor at Stirring: A Literary Collection, the longest continuously-publishing online journal on the web. In 2016, Krista founded Lit Literary Collective, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that hosts affordable, accessible writing retreats and otherwise serves her local writing community. Krista received an honors BA in English from Indiana University South Bend. Sometimes she draws fat unicorns and paints cute animals.
For the last 20 years, Krista has been a paralegal and legal assistant at a law firm specializing in environmental and insurance coverage law. She claims a 19 year-old bass player and 14 year-old anime cosplay aficionado as her kin and an [age redacted] Excel wizard as her partner. Their home is run by a mini schnauzer and three personality-diverse cats.
