Welcome! My name is Katya Buresh, and I’m a writer, editor, candle-maker, chronic illness warrior, cat mom, and foster parent to various rooted things.

I have been so privileged this year as to, amidst a lengthy quarantine, attain the position of Poetry Editor for the 2020-2021 edition of Grub Street Literary Magazine.

My poetry can be found in Grub Street, and is forthcoming from Ligeia Magazine, Metonym Journal, and Day Eight Interfaith Poetry Anthology on Consolation and Loss.

My work is often informed by my struggles with chronic pain and chronic fatigue, mental illness, the natural world, spirituality, and the happenings of the world around me. Though I hesitate to use the word “inspired,” as I believe it is overused, I will say that I am most inspired, at this time, by the writing of Olena Kalytiak Davis, Elizabeth Bishop, Shane McCrae, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, and Sophia Shalmiyev.
