Gary Glauber is a widely published poet, fiction writer, teacher of literature, and former music journalist. At one point, he also was a sportswriter for the New York Mets' Inside Pitch. Gary's childhood was spent in Yonkers, NY, and he has migrated north ever since. While he has an MFA in playwriting, his publishing history concentrates on short fiction and poetry. His work has been nominated for Pushcart Prizes, along with Best of the Net. A few years back, he read at the New York Poetry Festival on Governor's Island. He also has taken part in several larger poetry projects including Found Poetry Review's Pulitzer Remix, a challenge to spin a variety of poetic styles in creating 30 poems in one month derived from Richard Russo's classic Empire Falls.

Glauber has had some 35 short stories and over 450 poems published in a wide variety of literary journals, magazines, and anthologies. He also spent years as a music journalist, championing the efforts of many talented pop and jazz artists who still struggle to be heard. He strives to remain a creative thinking warrior against the backdrop of this life's endless absurdities, championing the underdog to melodic rhythms of obscure pop music. He has two poetry collections, Small Consolations (Aldrich Press) and Worth the Candle (Five Oaks Press), and a chapbook, Memory Marries Desire (Finishing Line Press). He often can be found at poetry readings, sharing his works with poetry fans.

As a result of his second place finish in the 2019 James Tate Poetry Chapbook contest, another publication is forthcoming from SurVision Magazine. It is entitled The Covalence of Equanimity. He also has completed work on two other full-length poetry collections, and presently is in the process of securing their publication.
