KIM PARKO is an interdisciplinary artist and writer based in Santa Fe, NM. Moving between poetry, fiction, installation, performance and social engagement, Kim’s work reveres permeable states of being and makes space outside of the patriarchal status/static quo. Whether textual, visual, or ethereal, her creations embrace interconnection and fluidity, intentionally blurring boundaries.
Kim is the author of two books: a novel, The Grotesque Child (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2016) and Cure All (Caketrain Press, 2010), a work of poetic fictions. Her poetry and fiction have been published broadly, both in print and online. She is the 2018 winner of Boston Review’s Annual Poetry Contest. She holds an MFA from Bennington College and is an associate professor at the Institute of American Indian Arts. She is a mother, a wife, a maker, a hedge witch and a healer.
