[Poems first appeared in Stanford Journal of Asian American Studies, Summer 2013]
Born in Subic Bay, Philippines, Mg Roberts teaches writing in the San Francisco Bay area. She is a Kundiman Fellow, Kelsey Street Press member, and MFA graduate of New College of California, where strange tricks were added to her bag. Her first full-length poetry manuscript is forthcoming from Durga Press and her work has appeared and or is forthcoming in the anthology On Nest and Strangers, the Stanford Journal of Asian American Studies, Bombay Gin, Web Conjunctions, How2, The New Delta Review, and the anthology Kuwento for Lost Things. If she were not a poet she would be a snake handler, or maybe just a good speller.
