Tracy Jane Gregory is a cross-genre writer, multi-media artist, musician, and a queer feminist. She is currently living in San Francisco and is an editor at Letter [r] Press, a graduate of University of Washington-Bothell’s MFA program, and an English teacher’s assistant at City College of San Francisco. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in A Bad Penny Review, Best American Experimental Writing, Clamor Literary and Arts Journal, and the anthologies They Said: A Multi-Genre Anthology of Contemporary Collaborative Writing by Black Lawrence Press and Washington’s Best Emerging Poets by Z Publishing. She currently lives in San Francisco, CA.
Similar to the idea from Wabi-Sabi that art comes from a place of being, Tracy’s creative work utilizes hybrid forms to present the chaos of experience and identity. Her work often explores the relationship between religion, or death ideologies, and one’s sense of identity and physicality. Her current project is Helene, a hybrid genre narrative about a young queer woman who debates if she should become possessed by her dead grandfather’s spirit and hallucinates her childhood as a sitcom where famous religious figures and celebrities stand in for her family. The text ruminates on the grief caused by having a female body and uses comedy to address pain and induce healing.
