Anne Halsey lives in Central Texas with her husband and three small children, where she is writing a work of creative nonfiction about her great-grandfather. Grounded in extensive archival research and personal interviews, this book-length project reconceives our understanding of the modern decline of Puritan New England culture. That seemingly familiar narrative is complicated by the previously unsung narratives of the women who found increasing independence and autonomy as their culture struggled to adapt to a more secular age.
For six years, Anne served as Media Director at the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, where she created numerous radio, television, web, podcast, print, and film partnerships with major media outlets. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and her MFA in poetry at New York University.
