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 this fall she will be teaching literature and writing classes for Semester at Sea, and in 2024 she will lead a graduate seminar in the Environment, Spirituality, and Religion Program of the California Institute of Integrated Studies.


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 in Berlin this spring. Plans are in the works for a similar collaborative event with other Arctic Circle artists at THE 222.
