Krysten Hill

Krysten Hill is a daring demiurge.

Krysten Hill is a third year poetry MFA student at UMass-Boston from Kansas City, Missouri. She received her BFA in Creative Writing from Stephens College, where she became involved in Women’s Studies and activism. Her mother poets include: Audre Lorde, Nikki Giovanni, and Patricia Smith. She believes that this “page vs. stage” argument is getting out of hand and thinks that a poem should live in whatever skin it feels good in. Her greatest desire is to form a collective of women poets who travel around teaching the power of voice to the girls on front porches who wonder what that aching in their chests is all about.

Krysten is the poet for the July 16 reading.
