Greg Masters

Greg Masters is a writer and editor who has lived in the East Village of New York City for 40 years. When he arrived in Manhattan’s East Village in the mid-1970s, he pounded rock and roll drums in basement dives, “alternative” spaces, CBGB and Irving Plaza and began attending readings and workshops at the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Along with Michael Scholnick and Gary Lenhart, he edited the poetry magazine Mag City from 1977-1985. In 1977-78, along with a crew of poet comrades, he produced a cable TV show, Public Access Poetry (now available online thanks to the Poetry Project). From 1980-83, he edited the Poetry Project Newsletter.

He is the publisher and sole author of Crony Books.
