Larry Fagin
Larry Fagin grew up in New York, Hollywood, and Europe. He began associating with poets and writers in 1957, meeting David Meltzer in Los Angeles, and Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Gregory Corso two years later in Paris. In 1962 he became part of the circle of poets around Jack Spicer in San Francisco, and befriended Michael McClure, Philip Whalen, and Robert Duncan. At the end of 1965 he traveled to London where he lived for two years and met his first wife, Joan Inglis. They returned to New York and settled in San Francisco for most of 1968. Clark Coolidge became a close friend. Returning to New York within the year, Fagin began editing Adventures in Poetry magazine and books, which featured most of the poets of the New York School. In 1975, with the dancer Barbara Dilley, he cofounded Danspace, the dance program at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery; he was its artistic director for five years. Simultaneously, he taught writing at the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s and in 1976 joined the faculty of the Summer Writing Program at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. At Naropa he met and married the writer Susan Noel. In 1999 he began editing and publishing Sal Mimeo magazine, and in 2000, with Cris Mattison, he revived the Adventures in Poetry imprint. Fagin’s recent books are Dig & Delve (Granary Books, 1999), Complete Fragments (Cuneiform Press, 2012), and Eleven Poems for Philip Guston (Granary Books, 2016). He continues to edit and teach privately in Manhattan.
