Khadijah Queen is the author of six books, most recently Anodyne (Tin House 2020), winner of the William Carlos Williams Award from the Poetry Society of America. Her fifth book is I'm So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had On (YesYes Books 2017), praised in O Magazine, The New Yorker, Rain Taxi, and elsewhere as “quietly devastating” and “a portrait of defiance that turns the male gaze inside out.” Her verse play Non-Sequitur (Litmus Press 2015) won the Leslie Scalapino Award for Innovative Women's Performance Writing. The award included a full production at Theaterlab in New York City, directed by Fiona Templeton. A hybrid essay about the pandemic, “False Dawn,” appeared in Harper’s Magazine in 2020. She holds a PhD in English and Literary Arts from University of Denver and is an Associate Professor teaching creative writing, literature and poetics at Virginia Tech.
