'''Benjamin C. Krause''' (b. 8 Apr 1985) is a poet, editor, publisher, essayist, and literary translator. 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.

== Early Life ==

== Writing ==
-
Krause was born in Indianapolis, IN and moved to Ohio when he was eight years old. In high school he took an interest in poetry under the tutelage of his Creative Writing teacher, [[Terry Murcko]].
+
Krause got his first poetry acceptance from [[Tipton Poetry Journal]]. His first nonfiction acceptance, "All Indians Love Ghandi," was by ''The Literary Bohemian''. His first chapbook, ''Classifieds'', was published in February 2010. In March 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. In 2011 he appeared in ''Gargoyle Magazine'' #57, a magazine that has published many of his favorite poets.

== Writing Career ==

+
-
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.
