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. I’m also learning to live with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disorder that makes my immune system attack my thyroid. (Thanks, immune system).
My articles and essays have appeared or are forthcoming in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, River Teeth’s Beautiful Things, Pithead Chapel, Hippocampus Magazine, The Rumpus, Under the Gum Tree, Bellingham Review and elsewhere. Proximity Magazine named me as a finalist for 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 (Yet It Will Come), essays, and poetry. 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.
