Dylan Krieger hails from the Great Lakes but has called south Louisiana home for over a decade. She holds degrees from the University of Notre Dame and LSU, teaches at Southern University, and serves as managing editor of the newsprint literary journal Fine Print. She is the author of seven books of poems, most recently Predators Welcome (Limit Zero, 2024), as well as a chapbook and a vinyl poetry EP. Contrary to Warhol’s prediction, she has experienced two different 15-minute bouts of fame: once in 2017, when the New York Times lauded her first book and it reached #1 in American Literature on Amazon, and once in 2021, when her poem-generating astrology website,, went viral on Twitter.
