Alexandra Dine is a Queens-based poet and showrunner, teacher and multidisciplinary artist. Alex is an Event Coordinator at Everybody Press. Originally from Missouri and raised in Maryland, she closed shop on a small-town literary-arts magazine and tiny piano studio, lured toward the city’s rooftops and underground. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she became a preschool teacher and now works at a progressive private school on the LES. In her citywide experimental poetry readings, spotlit on accessing the space between, she strives to gasp through silence and walk at a slant, to drag beauty from the mundane; to connect through unnaming.
