Michael McGriff is an American poet.

Life[edit]

McGriff was born and raised in Coos Bay, Oregon. His work has appeared in Slate, Field, AGNI,[1] The Believer, Missouri Review,[2] and Poetry. He is the founding editor of Tavern Books,[3] a publishing house dedicated to poetry in translation and the revival of out-of-print books.

McGriff's book Home Burial[4] (Copper Canyon Press, 2012) chronicles the dissolution of a people and their landscape - the coastal Pacific Northwest.
