Marie Howe received her MFA from Columbia University, studying with Stanley Kunitz.

In the late 1980s, her brother died of AIDS-related illness. The loss of her brother, whom she has described as one of her closest friends, affected her deeply, inspiring her second collection of poetry, What the Living Do.

Her other published collections include The Good Thief, and The Kingdom of Ordinary Time and, most recently, Magdalene: Poems. She also coedited In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic.

Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, Agni, Ploughshares, Harvard Review, and The Partisan Review.

Howe has taught at Sarah Lawrence College, Columbia University, and NYU. She was the Poet Laureate of New York State from 2012 to 2014.
