Vacant Storefront - Greg Kuzma

For more than 45 years the poetry of Greg Kuzma has been attracting the attention of poets and critics from around the world who have followed his writing career from its early work, centered in youthful exuberance and angst, through the dark times of his younger brother’s death, to the depth and profound wisdom that this poet’s engagement with the world has brought to his work.

Professor Emeritus at University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Greg Kuzma has published thousands of poems in literary magazines throughout the country, including several appearances of his work in The New Yorker, Hudson Review, Poetry Northwest, etc. He has published more than 30 books and chapbooks of poetry, including an early book, Good News, published by Viking Press, which was re-published by Carnegie-Mellon University Press in their “Contemporary Classics” series.

He lives in Crete, Nebraska, with his wife Barb. They are the parent of two, and the grandparents of one.
