Writers’ Workshop graduates Daniel Poppick and Jessica Laser will read from their work.

Jessica Laser will read from Sergei Kuzmich from All Sides, published by Letter Machine Editions. 

“Finally an oracle with a gorgeous sense of humor. Jessica Laser's vision is singular, her voice at once formidable and intimate. Its impeccable wit imparts a bracing metaphysics” —Margaret Ross.  Laser is also the author of two chapbooks. She lives in Berkeley, California, where she is currently a PhD student in English.

Daniel Poppick will read from Fear of Description, published by Penguin, selected by Brenda Shaughnessy for the National Poetry Series. 

"In Fear of Description, Daniel Poppick, like many of the most interesting writers of our time, folds the labor of writing into the content of his poetry, stirs it around, and comes up with something genuinely free. The wildness of his lines had me amazed and grateful." —Lucy Ives 

Poppick is also the author of The Police. He lives in Brooklyn, where he works as a copywriter and co-edits the Catenary Press with Rob Schlegel and Rawaan Alkhatib.
