Poet Greg Miller grew up in Kentucky and studied French literature and political science at Vanderbilt University. He earned an MA in English and creative writing from Stanford University and a PhD in English from the University of California, Berkeley.
Miller is the author of the collections Iron Wheel (1998), Rib Cage (2001), Mississippi Sudan (2006), and Watch (2009). Wide-ranging in his interests, he has written on southern culture, community, family, and the experiences of Sudanese refugees and held residencies at the Camargo Foundation and the CAMAC Centre d’Art in France. Miller’s poetry frequently deals with both visual art and the life of cities. His scholarly work includes the book George Herbert’s “Holy Patterns”: Reforming Individuals in Community (2007).
