Miriam Bird Greenberg is the author of In the Volcano's Mouth, winner of the 2015 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize from the University of Pittsburgh Press, and of two previous chapbooks—All night in the new country (Sixteen Rivers) and Pact-Blood, Fevergrass (Ricochet Editions).

She has been recognized with fellowships from the NEA, the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, and the Poetry Foundation. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where for many years she collaboratively developed site-specific performances for very small audiences. She's currently working on an ethnographically derived poetry project about economic migrants and asylum seekers living in and around Hong Kong's Chungking Mansions.
