Caroline Knox earned her AB from Radcliffe College and her MA and PhD from University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. She is the author of several books of poetry, most recently To Drink Boiled Snow (Wave Books, 2015), Flemish (Wave Books, 2013), and Nine Worthies (Wave Books, 2010).

Knox is the recipient of grants from The Fund for Poetry, the Ingram Merrill Foundation, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts, among others. She lives in Massachusetts.
