Author's Bio

Since publishing his first work, a play, at the age of eighteen, Gregory Loselle has won four Hopwood Awards at The University of Michigan (in Drama, Long Fiction, Poetry and Essay), where he subsequently earned an MFA, as well as The Ruby Lloyd Apsey Award for Playwriting from the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Two chapbooks, "Phantom Limb," and "Our Parents Dancing," have been published by Pudding House Press, and a third, "The Whole of Him Collected," is coming from Finishing Line Press. He teaches secondary Language Arts and Art History in southeastern Michigan, where he is very, very picky about the differences between 'can' and 'may, 'good' and 'well.'
