Caroline Harper New is a poet and visual artist from southwest Georgia. Her creative work reckons with natural disaster, motherhood, and ancestry in the Gulf Coast, working through patterns of disappearance and re-embodiment. This creative work is informed by an academic background in anthropology, focused on collective memory and generational trauma.

She is currently an MFA candidate in Poetry at the University of Michigan. She also works as a director and writing coach for the Gilliam Writers Group.
