Kylie Gifis is a 17-year-old poet from Elizabethtown, New York, a small town near the Adirondacks. When she’s not cooped up in her library reading books or writing them, she spends time with her two younger sisters, and her cat named Matteo who often interrupts her work by walking across her keyboard. She enjoys cooking, theatre, running for her school team, traveling, learning new cultures, and reading enough poetry for a lifetime.
