Erica Anzalone I am currently a Schaeffer fellow and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I hold an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa. I come to UNLV from Drake University, where I taught literature and creative writing as a visiting professor from 2006 until 2009. My poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Denver Quarterly, Pleiades, Sentence, Cream City Review, Hotel Amerika, and elsewhere.  My manuscript “Samsara” is the recipient of the Noemi Press 2011 First Book Award.  It will be published in the fall of 2012.
