Rebecca Jung is a writer, poet, and ESL instructor, whose work has been published in The Impetus, MiPo, Wazee Journal, Purple Clover, Pittsburgh Quarterly, Evening Street Review, and Memoir. Her poetry has appeared in two books: “Along These Rivers: Poetry and Photography from Pittsburgh,” and “Burningword Ninety-Nine, A Selected Anthology of Poetry, 2001-2011.” She also has a chapbook entitled “Home Leave.”
She grew up an expat, moving eight times within a span of ten years, from Canton, Ohio; to Bukavu and Elizabethville in the Belgian Congo – just in time for the War for Independence; Nigeria; Libya; Turkey; Germany; Belgium; and back to the U.S., to go to Kent State – just in time for the shootings – where she earned a B.A. in art history. She later attended the University of Pittsburgh, where she received her B.A. in English writing.
Rebecca lives in an old Victorian house in Pittsburgh, which she shares with four rescue rabbits (one blind, one crippled, one with “behavioral issues,” one on antidepressants) and one pushy guinea pig.
She has no plans to move again.
