Linda Gregg, though born in New York, grew up in the woods of Marin County, Calif., the first of many landscapes that would influence her work. She attended San Francisco State University, gaining her master's there in 1972. Gregg has published several collections of poetry, including "Too Bright to See" (1981); "Alma" (1985); "Things and Flesh" (1999), finalist for the Kingsley Tufts Award for Poetry; and, most recently, her selected poems, "All of It Singing" (2008), which won the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize and the Poetry Society of America's William Carlos Williams Award. Other honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, A Whiting Writer's Award, several Pushcart Prizes and the 2006 PEN/Voelcker Award for Poetry.
