G.W. Clift writes short stories, criticism, poetry, and a log of his cultural experiences. His books include Mustaches (BkMk) and Everything I Learned by Age Forty (Woodley Press). An Arts critic for The Manhattan Mercury, an experienced editor, and a Kansas Arts Commission Fellow, he makes his home in the Flint Hills and eats lunch every Wednesday in Aggieville, unless he’s off traveling somewhere.
Writing about him, Clinton Dean Towns has said: “Clift reminds me of John Masefield. Which is to say he comes up to me at parties and says, ‘Remember John Masefield.’”
