Noah Lenstra hails from the hills of the Driftless Area, a
glacial remnant in northwestern Illinois and southeastern
Wisconsin. Before becoming an undergraduate at the University
of Illinois, Noah lived in Brazil for a year during high
school and continues to seek out the few Brazilian
restaurants available in the Midwest. He has written poetry
off-and-on for a number of years and enjoys most especially
the work of Robinson Jeffers and Dorothy Parker.
