About Diane GlancyDiane Glancy is an American poet, author and playwright of Cherokee descent. At a young age, she had a hard time with determining her identity because of how her Indian lifestyle did not relate to what she was learning in school. Glancy decided to reclaim her Cherokee descent and found it easy to express in her poetry. She received her Bachelor of Arts (English literature) from the University of Missouri in 1964, then later continued her education at the University of Central Oklahoma, earning her a Masters degree in English in 1983. In 1988, she received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa. Glancy’s collection of poems, Primer of the Obsolete, won the 2003 Juniper Prize for Poetry.
