Kris Ringman (she/they) is a deaf queer author, artist, and wanderer. They write multi-cultural lyrical fiction and poetry inspired by their persistent wanderings to far off places and the magical inspiration they gets from nature. They are the author of Sail Skin: poems (Handtype Press, 2022), two Lambda Literary Finalist books: I Stole You: stories from the fae (Handtype Press, 2017) and Makara: a novel (Handtype Press, 2012), and the editor of Everyday Haiku: an anthology (Wandering Muse Press, 2017). Both their fiction and poetry have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. They received their MFA from Goddard College and have attended the Gullkistan Residency for Creative People in Iceland and three A Room of her Own (AROHO) Women’s Writing Retreats at Ghost Ranch. When they’re not writing or making art, they can be found on the ocean or in the mountains.

Kris is currently working on their next poetry collection and literary upmarket fiction novels that play along the boundaries of magical realism, fantasy, and horror.

Kris is represented by The Kepner Agency.
