Trista Mateer is a poet from outside of Baltimore, who could be living anywhere by the time you read this. She moves too much to remember to update her bios!
Mateer is known for her eponymous blog, started in 2013, which primarily chronicles her romantic endeavors in the form of free-verse poetry. This has seen her branded as an "aggressively personal poet," but her confessional style has also made her writing relatable to thousands of readers worldwide.
In 2014 she won the Where Are You Poet manuscript contest hosted annually by Clementine von Radics' Where Are You Press. In 2015 she won the Goodreads Choice Award for poetry with her self-published edition of The Dogs I Have Kissed.
She is currently working as a freelance editor but still manages to spend most of her time Googling cheap air fare and writing poetry about things that don’t matter anymore.
