Eileen Myles, Matvei Yankelevich, Darcie Dennigan, TUES 9/25/12
Intercambio presents readings by three amazing writers and music by DJ Shaki. We’re trying a new venue where beauty will be on your side.Eileen Myles was born in Boston and moved to New York in 1974 to be a poet. Since then she’s produced more than twenty volumes of poetry, fiction, essays, plays, performances and libretti. Of Snowflake/different streets (Wave Books, 2012) her latest, Huffington Post writes “Myles has always written queerly – and her work – lawless and conversational, precise and transce
ndent. . . illuminates the link between gender and physical space in one pass.” This fall Eileen’s teaching in Columbia’s writing program and she’s a 2012 Guggenheim fellow in non-fiction for her forthcoming dog memoir Afterglow. She lives in New York.Matvei Yankelevich is the author of the poetry collection Alpha Donut (United Artists Books) and the novella in-fragments Boris by the Sea (Octopus Books), as well as several chapbooks.

His translations of Russian poetry have appeared in many periodicals including Harpers, New American Writing, Poetry, and the New Yorker, and in several anthologies. He is one of the founding editors of Ugly Duckling Presse, and a member of the writing faculty of the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.
Darcie Dennigan’s books are the poetry collections Corinna A-Maying the Apocalypse and Madame X, and a poem/play/joke chapbook, The Dept. of Ephebic Dreamery. Her work has received awards from the Poetry Society of America and Discovery/The Nation, and fellowships from the Breadloaf Writers Conference and RI State Council on the Arts.
