About the Poet, Christine Trimbo

Originally from Shakopee, Minnesota, Christine Trimbo also lived in New Orleans next to Edgar Degas' house on Esplanade for many years, and was a major poetic voice and regular participant at the infamous Dragon's Den's Thursday Night Madpoets Express. During her time in New Orleans, Trimbo was also a mainstay of the weekly New Orleans Poetry Forum poetry workshops along with other notable poets Paul Chasse, Gina Ferrara, David Rowe, Robert Menuet, and Kevin Johnson. Trimbo's poetic signtaure lay in the depth and detail of her extraordinary use of image underscored by intricate rhythms. Trimbo is also a huge fan of Sonic Youth and the Rebirth Brass Band.
