Katlin Walker

Katlin Walker is a Chicago suburbanite exiled in small-town Missouri, where she studies English and philosophy at Truman State University. Her infatuation with wordplay comes from high-stakes games of scrabble with her mother, and garners strength from edgy lady-poets like Lucy Corin, Kimmy Walters, and Jeanann Verlee. She’s inspired by fellow weird girls and the underrated daily lives of average adults. Thanks to hip undergraduate mags like Windfall and Rainy Day Magazine, several of her poems including “Bones” and “Ode to Burnt Matches” have been published.
