43950287_10108648395762447_644908666847232000_oKrista Cox is a poet, editor and activist based in northern Indiana (though she dreams of somewhere saltier).

She’s an intersectional feminist and anti-racist activist, and acts as chair of the Leadership Council of the Feminist Humanist Alliance, a social justice adjunct organization of the American Humanist Association.

Krista’s poetry appears in many fine journals, and she’s presently seeking a publisher for her chapbook How to Kiss a Monster. She’s the Managing Editor of Doubleback Review, a fledgling online journal that features work previously published at now-defunct journals, and 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 17 years, Krista has been a paralegal and legal assistant at a law firm specializing in environmental and insurance coverage law. She claims a 18 year-old bass player and 12 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.
