Corey Van Landingham (born 1986) is an American poet and Assistant Professor in the MFA program at the University of Illinois.[1]

Van Landingham is the author of two poetry collections: Antidote, which won the 2012 The Journal/Charles B. Wheeler Prize from The Ohio State University Press, and Love Letter to Who Owns the Heavens, forthcoming in 2021 from Tupelo Press.[2][3] Recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship[4] and a Wallace Stegner Fellowship in Poetry from Stanford University[5], Van Landingham's work has appeared in American Poetry Review, The Best American Poetry, Boston Review, and The New Yorker.[6]

Career

Van Landingham received her BA in English at Lewis and Clark College, her MFA in Poetry from Purdue University, and her Ph.D. in English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Cincinnati.[7][8][9] She has served as Emerging Writer Lecturer at Gettysburg College, and, in addition to teaching at the University of Illinois, currently serves as an Editorial Assistant for The Gettysburg Review, Book Reviews Editor for The Kenyon Review, and Poetry Editor for Ninth Letter.[10][11][12][13]

Van Landingham's first book, Antidote, responds to the death of the poet's father through a series of elegies alongside surreal landscapes and love poems. It has been lauded by Flavorwire as one of "50 Essential Books That Everyone Should Read" and by Refinery29 as one of the "30 Best Books Written by Millennials."[14][15] Her second book, Love Letter to Who Owns the Heavens, employs baroque lyricism to engage questions about technology, the social construction of the self, and the evolving experience of communication, love, and friendship.[16]
