Steve Dalachinsky Bio

Steve Dalachinsky was born in New York City after the "BIG" war and in between lots of little wars, and that is where he still resides. He has been widely published in magazines and journals both in the US and abroad and has been translated into French, German and Japanese. His works appear extensively on the internet and he has several chapbooks out, of which the latest are "One Thin Line" (Pinched Nerves Press), "Subway Assemblages" (JVC Books) and "Trio" (40 Winks Press). His poems appear in such journals as Long Shot Magazine, Blue Beat Jacket, Downtown Poets, Beat Indeed, Writers Outside the Margin, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry, and A Gathering of the Tribes.

He has a CD on Knitting Records entitled "Incomplete Directions" and two collections of his work were due out in 2001.

He has written liner notes for the CDs of many prominent musicians, including Anthony Braxton, Rashied Ali, Matthew Shipp, and James Blood Ulmer to name but a few.
