Recent work has been published by Gauss PDF and Petrella’s Imports. Her work will be included in the forthcoming anthology The New Concrete (Hayward, 2015). She is currently completing an MFA in interdisciplinary writing at Brown University.

Miriam Atkin is a writer and performance artist based in New York City. Her work has been largely concerned with the possibilities of poetry as an oral medium in conversation with avant-garde film, music and dance. Since 2010, she has collaborated with artist Kurt Ralske on various multimedia experiments combining poetry with the moving image, including their 2011 artists’ book, Rediscovering German Futurism: 1920-1929. Miriam regularly contributes art criticism to Art in America and ArtCritical, and her poetry has been published in the Boog City Reader and This Image journal. She is pursuing a PhD in English at CUNY Graduate Center and teaches writing and literature at Lehman College.
