She was born in Brooklyn and educated at Mary Washigton College of the Univeristy of Virginia. She was a freelance writer, teacher and the manager of the Partisan Review. She wrote many books for young people, including the following: POEMS NOW, THE MOBILIZATION EXPERIENCE and THE TREES STAND SHINING.
