Gregory Kimbrell is a queer writer who revels in literary creation as an act of subversion and personal empowerment. He experiments in form, genre, and narrative to explore, and locate his own, sexual and social identity and to approach the metaphysical.
He is the author of The Primitive Observatory (Southern Illinois University Press, 2016), winner of the 2014 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry First Book Award. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Impossible Archetype, Infinite Rust, Manticore—Hybrid Writing from Hybrid Identities, Otoliths, Phantom Drift, Rune Bear, and elsewhere. He is the events and programs coordinator for Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries.
