Her latest collection of poems, 4:30 Movie, an elegy for her sister, explores personal loss, global violence, the ways in which movies shape our imaginations.

Her first  collection of poems, That Kind of Danger  (Beacon Press, 1994), was selected by Mona Van Duyn for the Barnard Women Poets Prize.  She next published a novel,  About Yvonne ( W.W. Norton and Co., 1997)  which the New York Times called “a stunning novel of sexual obsession.”   In 2004  she published her second collection of poems, Turning to Fiction  (WW Norton and Co.)

Of her poems Adrienne Rich has said: “Donna Masini’s poems are on the wavelength of Whitman and Rukeyser but are inimitable her own: urban, sexual, working-class, passionate, marked by great moral intelligence and generosity.  She is one of the marvelous new poets this country is generating in a terrible time.”

Her work has  appeared in journals and anthologies including Best American Poetry,  PoetryPloughshares, APR, Open City, TriQuarterly, Paris Review, Brooklyn Poets, Renga for  Obama,  et al.

A  recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship,  New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, a Pushcart Prize, et al, she is a  Professor of English at Hunter College where she teaches in  the MFA Creative Writing program.
