Born in the medieval town Mechelen (1964) Karin became a kindergarten teacher. Doing so she combined two of her passions: small children and books.

Her biggest passion was and is (writing) poetry. To develop her writing skills Karin was not afraid to attend a variety of writing courses. She also signed up for a renowned biennial course, ‘Writers Academy’ (2015 – 2016).

Poems of Karin Dée were published in a wide range of literary magazines and anthologies in Belgium and The Netherlands. Many of her poems were selected in a lot of poetry competitions, and quite a number were awarded.   She is not afraid to put her poems on a stage, quite the contrary.
