Danielle Chapman is a poet, essayist, and lecturer in English at Yale University, where she teaches Shakespeare and creative writing. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, The Nation, Poetry International and elsewhere, and her essays in The Oxford American and Commonweal. Her first collection of poems, Delinquent Palaces (Northwestern University Press), was published in 2015.
Danielle will publish her second poetry collection, Boxed Juice, and her memoir, Holler: A Poet Among Patriots with Unbound Edition Press. The titles will be released simultaneously in September 2023, and be available individually and as a box set. Both works confront the fragility of life, the rupture of death, and the moral reckoning a search for meaning requires.
She lives in Hamden, CT with her husband, Christian Wiman, and their twin daughters.
