Cliff Fyman was born 1954 in Manhattan. At the first San Francisco Poetry Festival
in autumn 1976 he heard Anne Waldman read and then describe the start of the Jack
Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. In March 1977, he rode a Greyhound bus through
a blizzard to Boulder and studied that year with Anne, Allen Ginsberg and Dick Gallup.
He’s lived in the East Village since 1979 and has published his poems widely in magazines.
