Ann Gry

poet. writer.

The 2020&2021 Hugo Award Finalist

Man with Book


I write poetry with words I grab from reality, as there is beauty around us and inside us even more so. My interests lie in the topics of space exploration and new technologies as I strive to find a place in this ever changing world, and it's so rapidly rolling as my lips are finding rhyme to its tact. These topics will be featured in the 'Space Bride' series, on which I'm working now.

I like to draw and take photos, and sometimes merge words with other media. This finds its way in the zines I create. 

I write fiction with inclination to science fiction and fantasy.
