Next Letter in the Mail: Kate Colby


We’re getting ready to send out our next Letter in the Mail, and it’s from poet and writer Kate Colby! Kate takes comfort in writing a letter to us while while “embroiled in an extreme emotional situation.”

Kate Colby‘s seventh book of poetry, The Arrangements, is forthcoming from Four Way Books in 2018. Fruitlands won the Norma Farber First Book Award in 2007. She grew up in Boston, is a founding board member of the Gloucester Writers Center in Massachusetts and currently lives with her family in Providence, RI.
