About

Ben Kline lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, writing about our modern digital existence, former lovers, the Eighties, assorted concepts in astrophysics and growing up Appalachian. His chapbook of outer space/astrophysics poems Sagittarius A* will be released by Sibling Rivalry Press in September 2020. He serves as a poetry reader for Flypaper Lit and The Adroit Journal.

Ben spends a lot of caffeinated time working on several projects:

Two full-length manuscripts: Dead Uncles – poems about queer rural youth, folklore and family – and It Was Never Supposed to Be Ours – poems on politics, creativity, queerness and relationships in the digital era.

A chapbook of poems about the modern American health care system. You can peruse his recent work here.

His first-full length book of poems – Going Fast in Loose Directions – appeared in 2014, courtesy of Queer Young Cowboys. It remains out of print…for now.
