Demetri Liontos is a long-time Eugene resident and writer/poet. Formerly an English-
as-a-Second Language teacher at Lane Community College and the University of
Oregon, he is now devoting time in his retirement to writing more stories, poems and
short plays. His passion for foreign travel has over decades given him a myriad of rich
cultural experiences, in addition to learning five languages with which to liven up the
entertaining that he and wife Claudia enjoy sharing. He is a life member of the Very
Little Theatre, a passable cook, raconteur, hiker and a strong believer in local literary
publications such as
Groundwaters. (Groundwaters 2015: An Anthology)
