Biography

A native Mid-Westerner, Christina Lovin was born in Galesburg, Illinois, but has lived and worked in states as varied as Indiana, Maine, Ohio, North Carolina, and now makes her home in Central Kentucky. Her education is just as varied, beginning her schooling at Anderson University (then College), attending a community college (Illinois Central College) and Ivy League school (Harvard Summer Programs), and culminating in a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing degree from New England College.

Having had several careers ranging from minister's wife, to retail store owner, to real estate agent, to VISTA volunteer, Lovin now finds herself teaching writing courses at the college level, her favorite job ever.

Lovin's writing has appeared in over one hundred different literary journals and anthologies. She is the recipient of numerous poetry awards, writing residencies, fellowships, and grants, most notably the 2007 Al Smith Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council and the Elizabeth George Foundation Grant.
