Winner of the Southwest Writers Poetry Award, Katherine DiBella Seluja is a nurse practitioner and a writer. As many of those working in health care know, our patients frequently become part of our own personal stories. Katherine invites these stories to inform her writing and strives to reveal raw and powerful aspects of health and illness in poetic and lyrical forms.
Her poetry collection, Gather the Night (UNM Press, 2018), focuses on the impact of mental illness and is dedicated to her older brother, Lou.
She is co-author of We Are Meant to Carry Water, with Tina Carlson and Stella Reed. Forthcoming in 2019 from 3: A Taos Press, this is a collaborative response to the 2016 presidential election
