Featuring:
Ryan Chapman
Jeff Dolven
Marcella Durand
Michael Leong

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP encouraged.

Ryan Chapman is the author of the forthcoming novel Riots I Have Known (Simon & Schuster, 2019) and the illustrated book Conversation Sparks (Chronicle, 2015). His writing and illustrations have appeared in GQ.com, Electric Literature, Buzzfeed, BOMB, and an Australian teen magazine.

Jeff Dolven teaches poetry and poetics at Princeton University. He is the author of three books of criticism, Scenes of Instruction (Chicago 2007), Senses of Style (Chicago 2017), and the admittedly hasty Take Care (Cabinet 2017), as well as essays on many subjects, including Renaissance metrics, Fairfield Porter, poison milk, Shakespeare’s reading, and player pianos. His poems have appeared in magazines and journals in the US and the UK and are collected in a volume, Speculative Music (Sarabande 2013). He is also an editor-at-large at Cabinet magazine.

Marcella Durand's recent publications include Rays of the Shadow (Tent Editions, 2017) and Le Jardin de M. (The Garden of M.), with French translations by Olivier Brossard (joca seria, 2016). Other books include a collaboration with Tina Darragh, Deep Eco Pré (Little Red Leaves); AREA (Belladonna); and Traffic & Weather (Futurepoem), written during a residency at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She lives in New York City, where she is working on two long pieces: Mirror Lines, a piece for two mostly opposed yet sometimes resonant voices, and The Prospect, which wonders what our prospect(s) for continuing inhabitance might be. She has also finally completed her many-years-in-the-making translation of Michèle Métail's book-length poem, Earth's Horizons/Les Horizons du sol, excerpts of which have appeared/will be appearing in Seedings, The River Rail and Asymptote.

Michael Leong’s most recent books are Cutting Time with a Knife (Black Square Editions, 2012) and Who Unfolded My Origami Brain? (Fence Digital, 2017). His new book of poems Words on Edge (Black Square Editions) is scheduled for release at the end of April. Excerpts from his book-length poem in progress “Disorientations” is forthcoming in Best American Experimental Writing 2018. A former NEA Literature Translation Fellow, he is currently Assistant Professor of English at the University at Albany, SUNY.

Albert Mobilio is the recipient of a Whiting Award, a MacDowell Fellowship, and an Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. His work has appeared in Harper's, Hambone, Black Clock, BOMB, Cabinet, Open City, Paris Review Daily, and Tin House. Books of poetry include Bendable Siege, The Geographics, Me with Animal Towering, and Touch Wood. A book of fiction, Games and Stunts, has just been published by Black Square Editions. He is an assistant professor of literary studies at the New School's Eugene Lang College, an editor at Hyperallergic Weekend, and contributing editor at Bookforum.
