Chip Livingston is the author of a collection of essays and short stories, Naming Ceremony (Lethe Press, 2014), as well as two collections of poetry, Museum of False Starts (Gival Press, 2010) and Crow-Blue, Crow-Black (New York Quarterly Books, 2012). Chip’s poetry, essays, and short stories have appeared in such journals as Ploughshares, Crazyhorse, Prairie Schooner, Mississippi Review, The Writer, and Indian Country Today; as well as on the Poetry Foundation website.

Chip is a faculty mentor in nonfiction and fiction at the low-residency MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe; he is a faculty mentor in poetry and nonfiction at Regis University’s Mile High MFA program in Denver. Chip received his MFA in poetry from Brooklyn College and his MA in fiction from University of Colorado-Boulder (and his BS in journalism and his BA in English from University of Florida).

Writing in three genres, Chip is curious about what drives the multidiscipline author as well as what informs the singly focused, and he encourages experimentation with a diverse range of forms and poetics.
