Steve Dickison is joined by New York poet Vincent Katz for a reading of their recent work. Dickison and Katz have worked together on several projects and share a passion for the histories of San Francisco and Bay Area poetry, the Black Mountain College poets, and other things.
With his son, Oliver, Katz has been filming a series of interviews of Bay Area poets, including Bill Berkson, Norma Cole, Diane di Prima, Kevin Killian, Joanne Kyger, Michael McClure, and David Meltzer.
Steve Dickison recently guest-edited, with David Meltzer, the “Shuffle Boil Special Issue” of Amerarcana. “For Mnemosyne” appeared at SFMOMA’s Open Space: The View from Here, Issue 4; [ 2nd floor projects ] published Sound Studio 3 (Liner Notes) for the exhibition “time silence and the sky: Norma Cole, Léonie Guyer, Wayne Smith”; a portion of “Liberation Music Orchestra” was in BAX 2015: Best American Experimental Poetry (Wesleyan, 2016); and four poems from “Wear You to the Ball” received the 2014 BOMB Poetry Prize. He directs The Poetry Center at San Francisco State University, teaches at that school and at California College of the Arts, and lives in San Francisco.
