Laurie Glover

Literary Arts Program Director

During the 20 years Laurie Glover taught at UC Davis, she had the good fortune to teach in the Nature and Culture program with world-class scientists such as Eldridge Moores and literary giants such as Gary Snyder, to collaborate with Latina and Israeli poets Maria Melendez and Yosefa Raz, and to co-author a leftist guide to California with historian Victor Silverman. She says she is retired, but in Fall 2023 she taught literature and writing classes for Semester at Sea.

Laurie has published poetry and essays in journals such as ZYZZYVA, Terrain, and California Quarterly. In the fall of 2022, she participated in a shipboard residency out of Svalbard, Norway with 27 other international artists. Some of her Arctic poems will be part of an installation by Taiwanese artist Jia Jen Lin currently showing in Taiwan and moving to Berlin this spring.
