read from his current collection of poems, "Big Back
Yard," on Tuesday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. in Apple Tree
at Marlboro College.
Michael Teig was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. He attended Oberlin College and received his MFA from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. His poems have appeared in many journals, including FIELD, The Black Warrior Review, The Ohio Review, Crazyhorse, and The Gettysburg Review. His first book, "Big Back Yard," was selected by Stephen Dobyns to receive the inaugural A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. Teig is a co-founder and co-editor of Roman Jubilat.
According to the Boston Review, “Teig's work understands that the finest poetry is at once mystery and clarity…These poems conceive a world where familiar things are utterly strange, and the possibilities for profound tenderness are manifold.”
