About Our Folks

A few words about the lovely ladies and gents who will be entertaining you on September 13th:

ddpesh Since 2006, Brooklyn-based ddpesh have been churning out sleazy-sexified electro beats and rousing New York City's hipster pack onto the dance floor with their infectious DJ sets. The duo came together during high school in Youngstown, Ohio based, on their shared love of 90's hip-hop and dance music, and became fast friends. Since then, the pair have walked into residencies at Crudo and King Size and played countless gigs throughout Brooklyn and the Lower East Side. Their remixes for Kudu and Oppenheimer in 2007 and Chromeo in 2008 garnered them acclaim from both local and international media. ddpesh are currently working on new remixes and their, soon to be released, own original tracks.

Anne Hays is the founding editor of Storyscape Journal, is a graduate of the Sarah Lawrence creative writing MFA program, and is hard at work on her first book, Staging Something Genuine, a memoir about her work as a studio portrait photographer. She lives in Brooklyn with her partner, dog, and cat.

Tess Taylor, the 2010-2011 Amy Clampitt Resident, has received writing fellowships from Amherst College, the American Antiquarian Society, the Headlands Center for the Arts, and the MacDowell Colony. Her chapbook, The Misremembered World, was published by the Poetry Society of America, and her work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, the Boston Review, the Harvard Review, Literary Imagination, The Times Literary Supplement, Memorious, and The New Yorker.

Caitlin Delohery is the editor of The Delicate Rhino Review. She writes short stories and long essays. It is amusing to her friends that she has recently taken up cross stitching. She will be a MacDowell fellow in the Fall.

Free Advice:
