Among his other projects, he co-founded and co-edited The Reaper magazine with Mark Jarman.
Terri Glass has published a book of nature poetry, The Song of Yes, about which Susan Wooldridge says, "I treasure these poems immersed in wild nature, taking us to where the starfish cling, following the fox path to a 'surprise of deer' in an experience of spirit and the hushed purity of 'the God hour.'" She’s done years of all kinds of poetry teaching and served as Program Director for California Poets in the Schools from 2008 to 2011. Her poems have been widely published in literary journals and anthologized in Shadow and Light, Mountains & In Between, and elsewhere.
