Eric ZORK Alan, a 6x National Slam Poet competitor, is probably best known for standing on chairs. He is also known for gratuitously dropping names . . . like that he is the only poet ever to have his book [appropriately called “I am NOT a poet”] blurbed by Davy Jones, Dobie Gray & Wild Cherry. Zork has featured at the hottest poetry venues in America including Chicago’s legendary Green Mill where slam started. He has toured across America visiting High Schools and colleges in his mission make more poets. He performs at and hosts ZorkSlams [student based events] at Barnes & Noble Bookstores Nationwide. He hosts Westchester County, NY’s largest poetry slam.
