Board and Staff
Graywolf Press is led by Director and Publisher Fiona McCrae.
Our Board of Directors has between twenty and twenty-five members and provides fiduciary oversight of Graywolf’s operations. We have awarded Board Emeritus status to former board members who have made a significant impact in the history of the press.
The National Council is an informed advisory group of donors and friends across the country who support Graywolf’s efforts on a local basis, especially in the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, New York, Portland (Oregon), the Twin Cities, and Washington, DC.
There hasn't been a single moment in my nearly five years with Graywolf when I haven't been treated with absolute respect, by people who are clearly superb at their jobs.
