Alice Fogel

Alice B. Fogel is New Hampshire's State Poet Laureate (2014-2019). Originally from the Hudson Valley, she is a former theatrical costumer who earned her BA in art and literature from Antioch College, and her MA in poetry from the University of New Hampshire.

In addition to Strange Terrain, a guide to appreciating poetry without necessarily “getting” it, she is the author of five poetry collections, including Be That Empty (2007); Interval: Poems Based upon Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”(2015), which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature; and A Doubtful House (2017). She has been an eight-time Pushcart nominee, and her poems appear in many journals and anthologies, including the Best American Poetry and Robert Hass’s column Poet’s Choice.

Fogel has been a fellow at the Carl Sandburg National Historic Site and a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, among other awards. She has been a reader or judge for numerous programs or publications, including Alice James Books, the Maine Arts Council writing grants, Bauhan Publishing, and the Xochi Quetzal Artist Residency. She travels around giving talks and workshops for all ages on both reading and writing, through the New Hampshire Councils on the Arts and the Humanities, as well as on her own. She works one-on-one with learning disabled students at Landmark College in Putney, Vermont.
