       - Darja Gremillion

Born in 1944 in Santa Monica, California, Ms. Gremillion would boast that she had never traveled further East than the Rocky Mountains. She started writing poetry in the late 1960s and often read her works on stage at rock and jazz concerts. Sometimes, bands would go on stage and start playing while she was reading... as a way to complement her work... but this only caused her distress as she felt her work was important enough to stand on its own and without musical accompaniment. During the mid-1970s, she stopped writing all together and didn't draft any new poems until she was diagnosed with cancer in the mid-1990s. After a difficult three year battle, Ms. Gremillion passed away in late 1997.
