He is the author of The Language of Grief, a self-published collection of poems dedicated to his father, the journalist Nick Gallo. Sherman Alexie wrote, “Alex Gallo-Brown’s poems are the sad and beautiful tales of a lost son, lost father and, yes, lost generation. But these poems are fun and smart. Flooded with imagery and besotted with music. I love them.”
The recipient of emerging artist awards from WonderRoot and the City of Atlanta, he holds a BFA in Writing from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and an MA in Creative Writing from Georgia State University in Atlanta. In 2016, he was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in poetry. He is currently a writer-in-residence with Seattle Arts and Lectures.
