Natasha Trethewey won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for poetry for Native Guard, her 2006 collection about black Union soldiers during the U.S. Civil War. Trethewey's poems about cultural memory and ethnic identity have been winning prizes since she published her first collection, Domestic Work, in 2000. She is an Associate Professor at Atlanta’s Emory University.

Her short fiction has appeared in Best American Short Stories, Best American Mystery Stories, Tin House, Callaloo, StoryQuarterly, The Gettysburg Review and elsewhere.
