Miriam's poetry has been published in New Millenium Writings, ArtLife, Blue Mesa Review, New Zoo Poetry Review, Nimrod: International Journal of Prose and Poetry, Black Maria, ECOS, and other journals. She is an active member of the Squaw Valley Community of Writers in Lake Tahoe, CA and the Hudson Valley Writers Guild.

Background Information

Miriam's enigmatic ancestry compels her writing. As evidenced by her family's uniquely hybrid practices and traditions, it is likely they descend from crypto-Jews or "conversos" from the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. These "conversos" or converts to Catholicism, fled the Spanish Inquisition and came to live in the New World. Descendants of these conversos intermarried with the Native Americans and old Christians that populated the American Southwest.


MA, The Program for Writers, University of Illinois at Chicago; founder of the Medusa Community of Poets and Writers at Russell Sage College
