Poet Ada Limón is a current Guggenheim fellow and author of five poetry collections, including her most recent, The Carrying, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry. She teaches in the Queens low-residency MFA program. Her books also include Bright Dead Things (2015), a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Books Critics Circle Award. Her work has appeared in numerous publications including The New Yorker, Harvard Review, Pleiades and Barrow Street. 

Of her latest book, The Washington Post writes: "Evocative dreams and pivotal memories help make this collection a powerful example of how to carry the things that define us without being broken by them.” The San Francisco Chronicle writes: "Tender, illuminating . . . The anxiety of all of life’s realities permeates Limón’s collection, which makes the work feel piercingly of the moment." She splits her time between Kentucky, California and New York.
