Biography

G. C. Waldrep (born George Calvin Waldrep III; 1968) is an American poet and historian.

Biography

Waldrep was born in South Boston, Virginia. He earned undergraduate and doctoral degrees in History at Harvard University and Duke University, respectively, before receiving an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Iowa.

He was visiting professor at Kenyon College, and editor of Kenyon Review. He currently teaches at Bucknell University, where he directs the Bucknell Seminar for Younger Poets and edits the journal West Branch. He also serves as Editor-at-Large for The Kenyon Review.

His work has appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, Boston Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, Colorado Review, Gettysburg Review, New American Writing, American Letters & Commentary, Seneca Review, Tin House, Quarterly West, Octopus, Harper's, Gulf Coast and elsewhere.

He wrote an article about an area of Old Order life that no other scholar had covered and was thus widely received.

In 2012, he co-edited the poetry anthology The Arcadia Project.

He is a member of the Old Order River Brethren.
