Dora Malech (Director’s Guest 2019; CRF 2009), will read from her body of work and discuss her creative process, focusing on sound as a through line across poems and projects. She will explore sound’s function in poetry not merely as a decorative element, but as a generative force.

Dora Malech is the author of four books of poetry, most recently, Stet (Princeton University Press, 2018), and the forthcoming Flourish (Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2020). Her poems have appeared in publications including The New Yorker, Poetry, and The Best American Poetry. She is the recipient of honors that include an Amy Clampitt Residency Award, and a Ruth Lilly Poetry Fellowship. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland, where she is an assistant professor in The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University.
