I Am Not Famous Anymore: Erin Dorney Reading

August 24, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Erin Dorney’s writing has been featured in Day One, Passages North, Bone Bouquet, Juked, Hobart, Paper Darts, The Found Poetry Review, The Pinch, Painted Bride Quarterly, and Birdfeast, among other publications. She is the recipient of grants from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council/McKnight Foundation, Tofte Lake Center/Jerome Foundation, and Spruceton Inn Artist Residency. Her debut collection of poetry, I Am Not Famous Anymore: Poems After Shia LaBeouf, is out now from Mason Jar Press.

“When at its best, the art of the erasure is not the simple removal of language, but the work of finding the threads resting underneath what already exists. In I Am Not Famous Anymore, Erin Dorney is both puzzle-maker and puzzle-solver, chipping away at Shia LaBeouf and making something newer, and more glistening.”

–Hanif Abdurraqib, author of They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us
