Linda Norton’s debut collection, The Public Gardens: Poems and History (2011), was a finalist for an LA Times Book Prize. Her work has been featured in the anthologies New California Writing (2013, edited by Dayle Wattawa and Kirk Glaser), Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here (2012, edited by Beau Beausoleil and Deema Shehabi), and As If It Fell from the Sun (2012, edited by Colleen Lookingbill and Elizabeth Robinson). With Calvin Bedient, Robert Hass, and Brenda Hillman, Norton helped establish the New California Poetry series for the University of California Press.
