Terese Coe’s poems and translations appear extensively in journals (see the Acknowledgements page), libraries, and databases in the US, UK, Ireland, and Canada, including the World Trade Center Archives, the Poetry Library at the South Bank Centre in London, and JSTOR.

Her poem “More” was heli-dropped across London as part of the 2012 London Olympics’ Poetry Parnassus, and her work appears in anthologies such as The Cento: A Collection of Collage Poems, Irresistible Sonnets, Grace Notes (a First Things anthology), Anthology One (from the Alsop Review Press), and Phoenix Rising from the Ashes.

Coe has been awarded two grants from Giorno Poetry Systems, First Prize in the Schaible Sonnet Contest, and was twice a Finalist in the Barnstone Translation Prize, among other awards and finalist nominations. WordTech Communications awarded her a publication prize for her first collection of poems, The Everyday Uncommon.

Having received an M.A. in dramatic literature from the University of Utah, in her youth she worked as a drama critic, columnist, and editor as well as a writer and teacher who traveled. She began submitting poems for publication after 9-11 and currently teaches English writing at the NY Institute of Technology. Her two children, their partners, and her grandchild are sources of joy.
