Ansley Moon was born in New Delhi, India, and has since lived on three different continents. Her book of poetry, How to Bury the Dead, was published by Black Coffee Press in 2011. She is the recipient of fellowships and awards from Barbara Deming Memorial Fund, Kundiman, and Hambidge. She lives and works in New York City.

Ansley writes, “While at Dickinson House, I am excited to continue revising my book of poetry, Girl Country, which is a collection about adoption, infanticide and gender politics in India. I am open to exploring a new country and spending time at Dickinson House, which I am sure will inspire new work.”
