MEET THE ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Karen Neuberg resides in Brooklyn, NY and West Hurley NY with her husband. She spent much of her working life doing research as an information specialist. She’s also been a public librarian, marketing researcher, and social worker. Retired now, she has more time for many activities including, of course, writing and other literary/artistic pursuits, as well as family, friends, and volunteer work – oh, and the gym, where she works out and practices yoga and tai chi.
Her poetry and prose have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous online and print journals and anthologies including DIAGRAM, 42Opus, Columbia Poetry Review, Memoir (and), Counterexample Poetics, and decomP. She’s a two-time Pushcart and a Best of the Net nominee and holds an MFA from the New School. Links to her works, including information on her chapbook, Detailed Still (Poets Wear Prada Press, 2009), can be found at http://www.karenneuberg.blogspot.com/.
