I live, write, and teach in Frederick, Maryland, where I share my home with my husband, Carl, and our four rescue pets who think they own the house. We’re members of a Unitarian Universalist congregation where he serves as minister. Having been raised Jewish, I’m not good at regular church attendance. But I love to read his sermons.

My articles and essays have appeared in The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning NewsThe Huffington PostRiver Teeth’s Beautiful ThingsPithead Chapel, Hippocampus Magazine, The Rumpus, Literary Mama, The Manifest-StationUnder the Gum Tree, Bellingham Review, Full Grown Peopleand elsewhere. Proximity Magazine named me as a finalist in its 2016 inaugural personal essay prize.

I’ve also written for newspapers and news services in the United States and abroad, including The Glasgow Sunday Herald, Scripps Howard News Service, and the San Antonio Express-News.

Most of my writing now focuses on my book-in-progress (Mother of Rebellion), essays, and the occasional poem. I write every day, even on weekends.

This site is where I blog about what it means to survive beyond unimaginable losses, mine our lives for joy, and keep faith in love. I’ll also share my own published writing and the work of writers whose words embolden me. Follow me on Twitter @maginlasovgregg.
