C. E. Greer grew up in the Fort Collins area and lives now near Wellington. He earned degrees from Dartmouth College and the University of Washington. A major theme of his poetry explores the human place in nature, the same question his work on university faculties in Texas and Indiana considered from a blend of physical science and social science perspectives. His two chapbooks, Wild Plums and No Famous Place, are both from Pudding House Publications, 2010. He is co-editor of two anthologies: "Say This of Horses: A Selection of Poems” from University of Iowa Press, 2007, and "And Know This Place: Poetry of Indiana," forthcoming from Indiana Historical Society Press in 2011.
