​Workshop Space



​Terry Lucas brings to his work a keen poetic eye and ear. Attuned to his authors' need, acute in his assessments, and generously proactive in his editorial collaboration, he can make a poem or manuscript truly sing.


--David Groff, Lambda Award-Winning editor, poet, and teacher


While working with Terry, I've had four poems long-listed in a major poetry competition, and two named as finalists for other awards. My conversations with Terry are the highlight of my week, and I highly recommend him to others seeking a deeper, more confident relationship with their own writing and poetry at large.
