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 memoir, Holler: A Poet Among Patriots with Unbound Edition Press in October 2023 and her second poetry collection, Boxed Juice, in 2024. Both works confront the fragility of life, the rupture of death, and the moral reckoning a search for meaning requires.
