Alice Notley

Alice Notley is a prolific writer and visual artist whose experimental works often collapse traditional boundaries between genres. Born in Bisbee, Arizona and raised in Needles, California—desert places which she evokes in her poetry—Notley became associated with The New York School of poets and painters during her marriage to the legendary Lower East Side poet Ted Berrigan; their two sons, Anselm and Edmund, are also poets. In 1982 she published a short autobiography, Tell Me Again, and lives today in Paris, France.

"I will forever be indebted to Poetry Out Loud for the experience and opportunity that it has offered me. It has allowed me to get out of my comfort zone, face my fear and grow."
