Claudine Nash lives and writes in New York. She double-majored in English and Psychology at Wesleyan University and later went on to obtain two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Connecticut College and St. John’s University. Although poetry was her first love, she took a hiatus from literary writing for many years to focus on a career working with individuals who suffer from severe and persistent mental illness. Actively writing again, she enjoys infusing her work with images and concepts from science and psychology, processes which she has always found poetic in and of themselves.
Her poems have won competition prizes from the Avalon Literary Review and Eye on Life Magazine and have appeared in a number of publications including Asimov’s Science Fiction, Cloudbank, The Camel Saloon, The Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, The Westchester Review, Star*Line, and The MOON magazine amongt others. Her chapbook The Problem with Loving Ghosts was published by Finishing Line Press in 2014.
