82 West 3rd Street, Manhattan.Sunday, March 30, 2014
Rachel Levitsky's hybrid poetries and prose utilize politics, humor and abstraction to map the structural reality of everyday life. She is also playing with, and pushing the limits of, extending the possible form of the English language sentence. In 1999, Rachel started Belladonna Series in order to investigate and promote feminist avant-garde poetics. Belladonna Series is now Belladonna* Collaborative and Rachel is a participating member. At Pratt Institute, Rachel is faculty in the new MFA in Writing/Activism. In 2010, along with Christian Hawkey, she opened the Office of Recuperative Strategies. Her recent books are NEIGHBOR (UDP),The Story of My Accident is Ours (Futurepoem) and the chapbook Renoemos (Delete)
Lewis Warsh is the author of numerous volumes of poetry, fiction and autobiography, including A Place in the Sun (Spuyten Duyvil), Inseparable: Poems 1995-2005 (Granary), Touch of the Whip (Singing Horse) and The Origin of the World (Creative Arts). One Foot Out the Door: Collected Stories is forthcoming from Spuyten Duyvil in 2014 and Alien Abduction, a book of poems, from Ugly Duckling Presse in 2015. He is editor and publisher of United Artists Books and teaches in the MFA program in creative writing at Long Island University (Brooklyn).
