Q&A: NYT bestselling poet Kate Baer ’07 discusses her craft

Poet and two-time New York Times bestselling author Kate Baer‘s first book of poetry, What Kind of Woman, published in 2020, was met with critical acclaim and quickly catapulted her writing career. Since then, Baer — an Eastern Mennonite University graduate, whose work can also be found in The New Yorker and The New York Times, among others — has published a second collection, I Hope This Finds You Well, with her third title, And Yet, debuting Nov. 8. Her body of work largely focuses on motherhood and navigating life in a world disturbed by COVID — and she has garnered media attention for it, too, from sources like CNN and The Guardian.
