Queen’s University Belfast (Creative Writing) Award, Queen’s University Belfast- Creative Writing

Lindsey Appell is a writer and writing instructor originally from rural Montana. She holds a Master of Arts in English (British and American Literature) from the University of Utah and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Boise State University. Her poetry blends confessional, documentary, and experimental translation as lenses through which to examine the self and subjectivity at different ages and stages of development: how those selves navigate, war against, and at times fall to the long legacy of patriarchal expectations and power structures. Her scholarly interests are broad and include postcolonial theory, Old English poetry, medieval romance, James Joyce, and Jane Austen.
