Natalie Eilbert

Mark Koranda

A poet and a journalist, Natalie Eilbert has written about systemic power imbalances, leadership accountability and the ongoing fallout of climate change with an eye toward social and environmental justice. Overland, Eilbert’s third collection of poetry, uses naturalist observations to engage everyday catastrophes otherwise un-noteworthy, while also turning an eye toward endemic and systemic problems of authoritarian rule in the face of a dying planet. Poems from Overland have published in The New Yorker, POETRY, American Poetry Review, The Nation, and elsewhere. Her articles and essays have been published in Green Bay Press-Gazette, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, USA Today, Better Government Association, The Rumpus, Granta, The Lifted Brow and elsewhere. Born and raised in New York, she lives in Wisconsin as a local government watchdog reporter for Green Bay Press-Gazette.
