Paul Grant (1943-2019)
Paul Grant and Joyce Renwick
Paul Grant was born in Louisiana, and if memory serves, was working in a vinyl store near the corner of Connecticut Ave, NW and K Street in the mid 70s. I worked as a messenger at a law firm near there and would pop in on my way home. A few years later he reminded me that we’d already met. By then he’d cut his hair and was living with Joyce Renwick.
Paul was never very active on the scene, his readings were few and spaced over years, but he did righteously submit to all sorts of literary journals. He also had a couple of chapbooks published. I’ll see if I can dig up the titles.
In the 80s he worked for Phil’s Type.
