Autumn Konopka's poems have appeared in the Birmingham Poetry Review, Center City Weekly Press, Crab Orchard Review, Ekphrasis, Hinge Online, Mad Poets Review, Philadelphia Stories, Re)Verb, and Schuylkill Valley Journal. Her manuscript, What the Postwoman Left, was a semifinalist in the 2007 Crab Orchard Series Open Competition.

Autumn has read and performed her poetry throughout the Delaware Valley. In 2002, she participated in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival as part of the Wild Women, an ensemble of writers, artists, and musicians. She currently hosts a monthly reading series at Milkboy Coffee in Bryn Mawr, PA, for the Mad Poets Society and leads a bi-monthly writing workshop at the Big Blue Marble Bookshop in Philadelphia. She has taught community-based poetry classes for children and adults in Philadelphia and Trenton.

Autumn has an M.F.A. in creative writing from Antioch University. When she's not writing, Autumn works (and volunteers) for nonprofit arts organizations. And when she's not doing either of those things, she likes to bake, knit, and wander around the city. Autumn lives in South Philadelphia with her husband and two cats.
