About Gregory Wolff
I am an almost-PhD in philosophy turned organic farmer, writer of fiction, poetry, essays and children’s literature, and very proud father of two enchanted and half-wild children. My writing appears or is forthcoming in Chicago Quarterly Review, EVENT, Prairie Fire, Sycamore Review, Notre Dame Review, J Journal, Terrain.org, The Moth, About Place Journal, Rust + Moth, Zone 3, Writers Resist and elsewhere. I have just completed a literary novel about a high-altitude garden, a middle grade novel replete with botanical lore, a short story about romance on the psychological margins, and several children's picture books about wilderness in unexpected places.
I have spent many cherished hours in the field and forest, growing food, learning the art of sustainable forestry, and building happily imperfect structures with materials provided, mostly, by the earth herself. The wilderness of these intermingled spaces continues to spark my imagination, and populate even the darkest places with strange and beautiful creatures with stories to tell.
