I first met Josh Lefkowitz when he was performing in a play on theater row in New York City a few years back – he was funny, charming and great. I had no idea he was also a writer – and an award winning poet. I’ve asked him to read for us for our next event in NYC – Sunday, Feb 22nd, the theme is SOLITUDE. So glad he’ll be part of the line-up. Here’s his bio.
Josh Lefkowitz received an Avery Hopwood Award for Poetry at the University of Michigan, and won the 2013 Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Prize. His poems, stories, and essays have been widely published both online and in print, and he has recorded humorous essays for NPR’s All Things Considered and BBC’s Americana. Previously, Josh performed a pair of full-length autobiographical one-man shows in theaters and spaces across the country, and toured both domestically and internationally as part of Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell. Most recently he was a finalist for the 2014 Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize.
