Poet

Linda Harris Dolan is a poet, editor, and educator. As a teaching artist, she leads one-on-one writing sessions with pediatric patients at NYU Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital. She holds an MFA in Poetry and an MA in English and American Literature from NYU. Her own poetry circles questions of genetic illness, life in the disabled body, and the ways in which we are made and remade through sickness, loss, and caregiving. She’s particularly interested in the poetry that arises from our individual and communal vernaculars, and she helps students find the poetry that’s within their own everyday cadences and voices.
