Daye Phillippo

Daye Phillippo has lived her life backwards, first raising her family and later earning degrees in creative writing from Purdue University (2011) and Warren Wilson MFA for Writers (2014). She is the recipient of a Mortarboard Fellowship, an Elizabeth George Grant for work in progress, and a Tennessee Williams Scholarship for poetry.

She taught English at Purdue University and lives and writes in a creaky, old farmhouse in rural Indiana where she tends a garden, two cats, and a lively flock of Barred Plymouth Rock hens. Thunderhead, her debut collection of poems, was published by Slant in 2020. Read more of her work on her website:
