Dora Malech Portrait

If you know much about the Iowa City literature and poetry scene, you’ve probably heard about Dora Malech. An Iowa City resident, she was born in Maryland, achieved her BA in Fine Arts at Yale, then aquired her MFA in poetry at the University of Iowa Writer’s Workshop. She has many awards for her poetry and her poems have appeared in numerous publications, including The New Yorker, Poetry, Best New Poets, American Letters & Commentary, Poetry London, and The Yale Review. She is a very busy lady and hardly has time to donate for a photo shoot, but she agreed to meet me in front of the Dey House in Iowa City the other day for a quick shoot.
