@ in your ear @ DCAC
Please join us this Sunday, March 19, at 3pm at the DC Arts Center for a special poetry event. Two members of the Ugly Duckling Presse collective, Anna Moschovakis and Matvei Yankelevich, are travelling from New York to share their work along with our very own wonderful friend and poet Phyllis Rosenzweig.

A PhD candidate in Comparative Literature at the CUNY Graduate Center, ANNA MOSCHOVAKIS works on 20th and 21st-century American and French poetry and prose, avant-garde poetics, print culture, translation theory, and philosophy and literature. She has published translations of Henri Michaux, Claude Cahun, Blaise Cendrars, Theophile Gautier and others, and her first full-length poetry collection is due out in 2006. She holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MFA in Creative Writing from Bard College/Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts. She is also an editor, book designer and letterpress printer at Ugly Duckling Presse, an art and publishing collective.

PHYLLIS ROSENZWEIG came to DC from NY (where she hung out at the St. Marks Poetry Project) in 1974 to work at the Hirshhorn Museum; was lonely and bereft in D.C. until she met Doug Lang and through him Lynne Dreyer, Tina Darragh, Peter Inman, Joan Retallack, Diane Ward, and others. She edits Primary Writing with Diane Ward. Her publications (chap books) include: Seventeen Poems (O Press, 1975); Dogs (Edge Books, 1996); Reasonable Accommodation (Potes and Poets Press, 1997).

MATVEI YANKELEVICH is currently working with Eugene Ostashevsky on an Anthology of Oberiu Writers for Northwestern Univ. Press. His translations of Daniil Kharms have appeared in Open City and New American Writing, and forthcoming in The Germ. Matvei's translation of Alexander Vvedensky's The Grey Notebook was published in the new Eastern European Poets Series from Ugly Duckling Presse, which he edits. He is also a coeditor of 6x6, a poetry periodical. Matvei's own poetry and prose writing has appeared in Lit, Lungfull!, Fulcrum, Raised In A Barn, Dirigible, New York Nights, and online at Can We Have Our Ball Back, Shampoo, 3 AM, and Aught.
