Greg Williamson (born 1964) is an American poet. He is most known for the invention of the "Double Exposure" form in which one poem can be read three different ways: solely the standard type, solely the bold type in alternating lines, or the combination of the two.[citation needed]


Williamson grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. He was educated at Vanderbilt University, University of Wisconsin–Madison and Johns Hopkins University.

He teaches at Johns Hopkins University and lives in Baltimore, Maryland.[1] He is Associate Editor at Waywiser Press.
