Caitlin Bailey holds an M.F.A. from Hamline University where she served as an Assistant Poetry Editor for Water~Stone Review. Her poems have appeared in Hayden's Ferry Review, Bateau, Carolina Quarterly, Paper Darts, and elsewhere. She is currently working on a collection of poetry. Solve for Desire, her manuscript in progress, began as an M.F.A. thesis project. The poems in this collection, through a series of imagined letters between the Austrian poet Georg Trakl and his sister, Grete, as well as more abstract meditations, attempt to examine the ways in which grief and desire coexist.
