Poets Lewis Warsh, Toni Mirosevich & Tod Thilleman read in
Avery Burns’ Murmuration series
Tod Thilleman, originally from Wisconsin, has been based in New York since the early 1980s, active in art and poetry there with a long list of associations, readings and exhibitions. Throughout the 1990s, he was a co-editor of the journal “Poetry New York.” He also produced a series of what he termed Strophaic transcriptions (strophaic being a term derived by combining the word mosaic with strophe), whose main poetic reality was generated from the “overheard” and the “overseen.”
Also based in New York, Lewis Warsh has produced over thirty volumes of poetry, fiction and autobiography, including Alien Abduction (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2015), One Foot Out the Door: Collected Stories (Spuyten Duyvil, 2014), A Place in the Sun (Spuyten Duyvil, 2010) and Inseparable: Poems 1995-2005 (Granary Books, 2008) and co-founded with Bernadette Mayer United Artists Magazine and Books.
Toni Mirosevich lives in the Bay Area, teaching creative writing at San Francisco State University. She was raised in Everett, Washington, in a Croatian-American fishing family, part of an extensive immigrant Slav community, and her first jobs—as a truck driver, attic insulator and weatherizer, swimming pool operator, blood bank mobile unit operator, janitor, and handyperson—were viewed as nontraditional work fields for women when she embarked on them in the 1970s. Her family & work experience are one with her work in poetry.
