This week we welcome back Amy Glynn Greacen as our guest blogger. Amy's poems have appeared and/or are forthcoming in: The New Criterion, Poetry Northwest, Southwest Review, Cimarron Review, New England Review, Birmingham Poetry Review, and elsewhere. Amy Gerstler chose her poem "Namaskar" for The Best American Poetry 2010; Mark Doty has chosen a poem of Amy's for The Best American Poetry 2012. Prose non-fiction pieces are forthcoming in New England Review and Poetry Northwest, and she is a regular book reviewer for New York Quarterly. Amy has also been known to write novels, food porn and bad Faulkner parodies, and can occasionally be found singing jazz in dark, smoky rooms. She was raised in, and has found it impossible to move away from, the San Francisco Bay Area, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
