About Ada Limon

Ada Limon Biography

Ada Limón grew up in Sonoma California before attending The University of Washington where she studied theater at the University of Washington School of Drama. After taking writing courses from professors including Colleen J. McElroy she went on to receive her MFA from New York University in 2001 where she studied with Sharon Olds Philip Levine Marie Howe Mark Doty Agha Shahid Ali and Tom Sleigh. Her graduate class included the noted poets Jennifer L. Knox Gregory Pardlo Jason Schneiderman Kazim Ali and Kathleen Graber.


Upon graduation, she received a fellowship to live and write at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. In 2003 she received a grant from New York Foundation for the Arts.


After 12 years in New York City where she worked for various magazines such as Martha Stewart Living GQ and Travel + Leisure she now lives in Lexington Kentucky and Sonoma California where she writes and teaches.


Limón's first book Lucky Wreck was chosen by Jean Valentine as the winner of the Autumn House Poetry Prize in 2005 while her second book This Big Fake World was the winner of the Pearl Poetry Prize in 2006. The two books came out within less than a year of each other. In a 2014 article in Compose Magazine she wrote I went from having no books at all to having two in the span of a year. I felt like I had won the lottery well without the money. I suppose in my life I’ve never done things the ordinary way. I’m either deep in the bottom of the well or nowhere near water.
