The KPS Poet Interviews

About Our Interviewer Ann van Buren

In addition to her writing for KPS, Ann van Buren’s poetry, interviews, book reviews, and translation appear in The Rumpus, The Westchester Review, Columbia Review and other newspapers and journals. Her interest in cultural connectedness and her work as a librarian and teacher have transported her from her birthplace in Washington Heights NYC; across the US; to The Amsterdam Writing Workshops in Holland; and to China and back. She holds an MA and MLIS and lives with her family in NY and Maine.
