Agnes Vojta grew up in Germany and started writing poetry as a child. She wanted to be a pirate or a writer or an opera singer and ended up becoming a physicist. She spent a few years in California, Oregon, and England, and now lives in Rolla, Missouri where she teaches physics at Missouri S&T. As a hiker and rock climber, she loves to spend time outdoors, and the human connection to nature is a central theme of her poetry.

She is the author of Porous Land (Spartan Press, 2019). Her second collection The Eden of Perhaps is forthcoming from Spartan Press in 2020. Her poems recently appeared in Ariel Chart, As It Ought to Be Magazine, Former People, Gasconade Review, Nixes Mate Review, Thimble Literary Magazine, Trailer Park Quarterly, and elsewhere.
