Margaree Little


Margaree Little's debut collection, "Rest," emerged out of her work with a humanitarian aid organization on the U.S./Mexico border from 2009-2011. In 2010, Little was with a group of volunteers who found the unidentified remains of a man who had died while trying to cross. The poems in "Rest" attempt to honor this one unknown life.

Described by Mary Szybist as "formidable, vital, human work," "Rest" has been supported by a 2013 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award, a 2015 John Ciardi Scholarship from the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, a 2016 Bread Loaf Bakeless Camargo Fellowship, a 2016-2018 Kenyon Review Fellowship, and a 2018 Ohio Individual Excellence Award. "Rest" was a featured poetry title in Publishers Weekly's Spring 2018 Announcement and a Top Spring Poetry selection from Library Journal.

Margaree Little's poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, New England Review, The Missouri Review and The Southern Review, among other journals, and her criticism in American Poetry Reviewand Kenyon Review Online. Her translations from the Russian of the poet Marina Tsvetaeva have appeared in Asymptoteand In Translation: The Brooklyn Rail. She currently lives in Tucson.
