Short biography
Ann Brewer was born in Buffalo, New York, the daughter of a playwright. She graduated from Vassar College in 1946 and later earned a master’s degree in education from Catholic University and another in fine arts from what is now Warren Wilson College in Asheville, N.C. In 1947, she married M. Gordon Knox, a diplomat, with whom she had six children. They spent many years at foreign posts, including Moscow, London and Karachi. Ms. Knox wrote poetry during these years but didn't consider herself a writer until she was in her 50s. She produced three collections of poetry, Breathing In (2011), Stonecrop (1988), and Staying Is Nowhere (1996), as well as a volume of short stories, Late Summer Break (1995), and published poems and short stories in various journals, including Alaska Quarterly, Nimrod, Poetry and The Green Mountains Review. Ms. Knox was particularly interested in the lives of women, and many of her stories featured mothers and daughters. She taught writing seminars at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Johns Hopkins University, and the Antioch Writers’ Workshop, among other venues. For 18 years, she was editor of the Antietam Review, a literary journal, and was a longtime poetry editor of the nonprofit Washington Writers' Publishing House. She also taught at Georgetown Day School.
