Mary Kinzie

"Mary Kinzie reaches beyond established procedures and habits of feeling in poems distinguished by investigative precision, openness to process, heartbreaking lyricism, and keen intellection."


O.B. Hardison, Jr. Poetry Prize judge Joshua Weiner.


Kinzie is the author of seven collections of poetry: California Sorrow (2007), Drift (2003), Ghost Ship (1996), Autumn Eros and Other Poems (1991), Summers of Vietnam and Other Poems (1990), Masked Women (1990), and The Threshold of the Year (1981).



Mary Kinzie has won numerous awards and an artist grant from the Illinois Arts Council, the 1987 Elizabeth Matchett Stover Memorial Award in Poetry from Southwest Review, and the 1988 Celia B. Wagner Award from the Poetry Society of America. Professor at Northwestern University since 1975, she has taught the reading and writing of poetry, Victorian and modern literature, the reading and writing of fiction, American women poets, and the history and theory of prosody. Since 1979 she has served as head of the creative writing program at Northwestern.
