Gregory Luce is the author of Signs of Small Grace (Pudding House Publications), Drinking Weather (Finishing Line Press), Memory and Desire (Sweatshoppe Publications), and Tile (Finishing Line). His poems have appeared in numerous print and online journals, and in the anthologies Living in Storms (Eastern Washington University Press), Bigger Than They Appear (Accents Publishing), and Unrequited and Candlesticks and Daggers (ed. Kelly Ann Jacobson). In 2014 he was awarded the Larry Neal Award for adult poetry by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Greg was born in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in Texas, Kentucky, and Oklahoma. He received a BA in English and an MA in Creative Writing from Oklahoma State University. Following additional graduate work in writing at the University of Southern Mississippi, he arrived in Washington in 1980, eventually establishing a 32-year career at National Geographic. He retired in 2016 and now lives in Arlington, VA, and works as an instructor for Writopia Lab. He is Board Chair of Day Eight (http://dayeight.org/) and recently directed its DC Poetry Project reading series.
This project sought and found talented but unrecognized poets living in our region, giving them exposure through public readings and social media. At the end, we were delighted to be able to select work by Susan Meehan to be published as a chapbook and promoted by Day Eight. Greg serves as the Poetry Editor for Day Eight’s journal Bourgeon (bourgeononline.com) He blogs at https://dctexpoet.wordpress.com.
