UMAHS English Teacher To Have Book Published

Congratulations to our very own Jen Rieger! Jen is the English Department Chair at Upper Merion Area High School and this fall Minerva Rising Press will be publishing her first book, Burning Sage, a collection of personal essays reflecting on unconventional motherhood, unconventional teacherhood, and her accidental, and quite flawed, role-model existence. She has previously been published in Chautauqua Journal where she's been nominated for the 2020 Pushcart Prize, her work can also be seen in Philadelphia Stories' 15th Anniversary Anthology, BUST Magazine, The Sigh Press, Wisconsin Review, and The Manifest-Station, among others.
