This week we welcome Rebecca Lindenberg as our guest blogger. Rebecca's first poetry collection, GLOSS, is forthcoming in 2012 from the new McSweeney's poetry series. She is the recipient of a 2011 National Endowment of the Arts Literature Fellowship and a 2009-2010 Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center Fellowship. Her poems appear or will soon appear in POETRY, The Believer, 32 Poems, DIAGRAM, Conjunctions, No Tell Motel, Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, Gulf Coast, BlazeVox, Barrow Street, Western Humanities Review and elsewhere. She holds a Ph.D. in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Utah, where she also lectures. She grew up in Palo Alto, California, where she was the laziest member of the Greenmeadow Swim Team, and she makes a mean lasagna.
