Meg Eden and her husband, Vince, have been married for seven months. Meg does not miss her parents’ landline phone or the unsolicited calls from scammers. It became particularly unbearable when her mother used an antique phone that rang so loud it could be heard outside. Fortunately, Meg and Vince have only cell phones now.
Meg’s work has been published in various magazines, including B O D Y, Drunken Boat, Mudfish, and Rock & Sling. Her work received second place in the 2014 Ian MacMillan Fiction contest. Her collections include “Your Son” (The Florence Kahn Memorial Award), “Rotary Phones and Facebook” (Dancing Girl Press) and “The Girl Who Came Back” (Red Bird Chapbooks). She teaches at the University of Maryland, and will be a visiting writer at AACC in 2014. Check out her work at: https://www.facebook.com/megedenwritespoems
