MFA student York publishes more poems
Alexander’s recent publication is with Another Chicago Magazine and his poem “Nothing is Living in the Lake” will appear in ACM #50. His sister poem “Everything is Living in the Lake,” is forthcoming in the 2010 May issue of Word Riot.
What are some of the influences of Alexander York?
"If I told you Chicago wasn’t an influence, I’d be lying," says York. "Since moving to the city, I have changed numerous aspects of my writing, but working my way through a two and a half year MFA program helps the development quite a bit too. I try my best to mix the experience of city life and my small town familiarity I have embedded from living mostly in Ohio."
