He attended Dickinson College in 2003, and studied Computer Science while continuing to write poetry. He took English courses up to the 300 level, which included Creative Writing classes, but he was short of a minor. He took a year off for medical leave from 2006-2007, and graduated in 2008.

After returning from India, Krause decided to try getting some of his writing published. He got his first poetry acceptance from [[Tipton Poetry Journal]]. His first nonfiction acceptance, "All Indians Love Ghandi," was by ''The Literary Bohemian''.

Around this time, Krause conceptualized a series of poems collectively known as ''Classifieds''. In these poems, the speaker is taking an ad out in the newspaper, and, usually through implication, the reader learns the whole backstory of the speaker, whether tragic or humorous. These "Classified" poems ended up being among some of his first poems to be published, and formed the basis for his first and only chapbook to date, ''Classifieds and Other Poems'' (erbacce-press 2010). It contained fourteen "Classified" poems, six of which had been published elsewhere previously, and two of which were later reprinted. This book is now out of print by his choice, as he plans to self-publish an updated, revised version with extra poems.

In 2010, Krause was a Featured Artist at [[Counterexample Poetics]], and featured in anthologies of the best poems published that year by ''Children, Churches & Daddies'' and ''Foliate Oak''. He also developed a poetry form called the '''quincouplet''', and his essay about it was the Featured Article in [[Galatea Resurrects]] 16.

''Liebamour'' released its first print issue in April 2010, and discontinued the blog soon after. It took until December 2010 for Issue 2 to come out, but it was well worth the wait; the second issue was twice as long, formatted much better, and included both an interview and a critical essay. Issue 3 will be music-themed, and is due out in July or August 2011. It will feature the first half of "Systems of Flux," a psychedelic novella by Eckhard Gerdes. The second half will be printed in Issue 4, due out Winter 2011. However, Krause's interest in psychedelic literature has begun to fade. Thus, Issue 4-on will be edited by [[Brandish Yar]].

In Winter 2010-2011, Krause came full-circle with an online-only journal under the Diamond Point Press banner, called ''twenty20 Journal''. It features poetry and fiction of 20 words or fewer, and is by far Diamond Point Press's most popular journal, calling into question many popular ideas about online vs. print journals. It normally publishes two issues per quarter with no specific theme, except in the Summer when it publishes three themed issues.
