Young Gloria Swanson as the Lion’s Bride
Margaret Benbow’s poetry has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Poetry, Kenyon Review, the Antioch Review, Prairie Schooner, and others. Her collection Stalking Joy (1997) won the Walt McDonald First Book award and was published by Texas Tech University Press. She recently completed a second collection, Wild Women in Old Movies, and she has also published short stories—including “Angela Perfidia” in both our Summer 1997 issue and our Spring 2011 fiction retrospective. In 2014 Benbow won the Zona Gale Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers for the best published short story by a Wisconsin writer.
