Glenn Halak’s biography, in his own words: I started writing and painting very early, inspired by my great-grandmother’s poetry. From 2011 to 2012 I was translating German poets, Celan, Trakl and Anne Duden’s sequence of poems, Stone Strike. What they do with language allows me encouragement for what I like to do. A sequence of my own poems, Literary Apparitions, came after the translation period last summer. I’ve had a book of poems published by an online publisher, writerswebpress, back in 1998 and have had poems published over the years. Many paintings, three children’s books, some plays produced and lately two one-acts published, some short fiction and essays as well, are out in the world.
