More About the Author

Cynthia Linville has lived in London, New York, San Francisco, and outside of Washington DC but has returned to live in her hometown of Sacramento. She has taught in the English Department at California State University, Sacramento since 2000. A music aficionado with a theater background, she is usually out and about supporting the arts in Sacramento and in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Linville's work has appeared in many publications and several anthologies. Her two books of collected poems, The Lost Thing (2012) and Out of Reach (2014), are available from Cold River Press. Her poem "I am Fortune's Ungraceful Daughter" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2012. She has been a featured artist on Sacramento365: http://www.sacramento365.com/page/July2014_Artist

Cynthia is active in the Sacramento poetry scene, hosting readings, and reading with the group Poetica Erotica as well as on her own. She served as Poetry Editor of Poetry Now from 2008-2010 and has served as Managing Editor of Convergence: an online journal of poetry and art (www.convergence-journal.com) since 2008. She invented a form, the Linvillanelle, which is profiled here: http://sacpoetrynow.wordpress.com/2012/05/26/local-poetic-forms-and-a-contest/

Cynthia has been writing since she could write. In first grade, she won first place for her short story about a girl whose wish that chocolate pudding would flow out of all the faucets is granted - and who then has to save the town from the disaster that ensues. At 15, one of her poems was published in a national teen magazine, and she began studying poetry with Dennis Schmitz at age 18.
