Gary Norris grew up in Connecticut, Oklahoma, Colorado, Florida, and South Carolina. The climate, land, architecture, literature, and everyday language of each place are significant to his identity as a writer. He is ABD in Creative Writing at University of Denver. His work has previously appeared in Matter, Tusculum Review, and Double Room. In July 2017, he returned to the United States after living a decade abroad in South Korea and Cambodia. He is currently working on editing a manuscript of collected poetry written during his time in Asia. At KHN, he will be working on a new, prose-verse project, an autobiographical work focused on his reading of the American lyric, whiteness, and capitalist culture.
