Poet, storyteller, and teaching artist Luray Gross works extensively in schools and the community presenting workshops and performances for all ages. She is a believer in the power of poems and stories as resources for the nurture of heart, mind, and spirit. She is a rostered teaching artist for the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and Storytelling Arts, Inc. With these organizations and on a freelance basis, she has presented workshops and performances for students K – 12, teachers, and the general public since 1989. Her own love of the spoken and written word, the outdoors, and music were nurtured by her experiences growing up on a busy dairy farm in Pennsylvania. Luray is the author of three collections of poetry: Forenoon, Elegant Reprieve which won the 1995-96 Still Waters Press Poetry Chapbook Competition and The Perfection of Zeros.
