Her writing has appeared in
The Believer, The New Republic, Poetry, The Progressive, and elsewhere, and she
is an editor at the
Kenyon Review.
Her latest project is an examination of the effects of capitalism on persons trapped within its effects through poems
that take on the voice of people such as employees of Walmart. Her poetry “invite[s] the reader to leap into
previously unconsidered lives and viewpoints while also recognizing in those lives and viewpoints certain elements of
human experience that are common to us all. Essentially, literature can argue for the humanity of each and every person.”

She earned a BA in Writing Seminars from the Johns Hopkins University, an MFA in Poetry from the Ohio State
University, and a JD from the University of Chicago. For the 2011-2012 year, Shapero served as the Steven Gey
Fellow with Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Shapero is Professor of the Practice of
Poetry at Tufts University.
