About Spencer ReeceSpencer Reece is an american poet. He is the national secretary for the Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Madrid, Spain. His first book of poetry 'The Clerk’s Tale' was published in 2004 and was the winner of the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference Bakeless Prize and was judged by former U.S. poet laureate Louise Glück. The title poem describes a day in the life at a store in the Mall of America. His second book 'The Road to Emmaus' was published ten years later in 2014. His poems have also appeared in many journals and magazines The New Yorker and The American Poetry Review. His prose devotional, The Little Entrance, is based on the idea 'that poems are like Byzantine icons, portals to the divine', and includes 'a series of meditations' on the poets George Herbert, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson and James Merrill. This book is slated for publication in 2020.
