Episode #42 welcomes Meg Eden and her most recent book, Drowning in the Floating World, about the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Meg has appeared in issues #48 and #49 of Rattle.
Meg Eden's father has worked in Japan for most of her life, so she considers Japan her second home. Her work is published or forthcoming in magazines including Prairie Schooner, Poetry Northwest, Crab Orchard Review, RHINO and CV2. She teaches creative writing at Anne Arundel Community College and the MA program at Southern New Hampshire University. She is the author of five poetry chapbooks and the novel Post-High School Reality Quest (2017). She runs the Magfest MAGES Library blog, which posts accessible academic articles about video games.
