Lynn Strongin


Born and raised in New York, Strongin’s early childhood studies were in musical composition. Polio at age twelve, one of the last polios before the inoculations came in, left her in a wheelchair. She studied literature, music, and devoted herself to writing. Published in thirty anthologies, she is a frequent presence in the American classrooms, and several abroad. Winner of two P.E.N. awards and one National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing grant, most recent among her accolades was her nomination for the Pulitzer Prize in literature. She has been called by the late great critic Hugh Fox, “the most exciting poet writing in America today”.
