Poet and scholar Jennifer Chang is the author of two books of poetry: The History of Anonymity selected for the Virginia Quarterly Review’s Poetry Series and was a finalist for the Shenandoah/ Glasgow Prize for Emerging Writers, and Some Say the Lark. In a review of The History of Anonymity for the Boston Review, critic Kristina Marie Darling observed, “While formally diverse, the collection is unified by an ongoing engagement with the natural world, with Chang often presenting forests, rivers, and vast seaside landscapes as loci for her speakers’ search for self-knowledge and authenticity.” Chang earned her MFA and PhD from the University of Virginia and teaches at George Washington University.
