Margaret Rozga has published four books of poetry. Her most recent book Pestiferous Questions: A Life in Poems (2017), looks at issues of women’s roles, U.S. western expansion, and race as they are woven through the life of politically active and well-connected Jessie Benton Frémont (1824-1902). Research for this book was supported by a creative writer’s fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society. Rozga has also been a resident at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and at the Ragdale Foundation. Her poems have been published recently in Presence, Leaping Clear, and Sweet Tree Review. She writes a monthly op-ed for Milwaukee Neighborhood News.
