About Lexi Rudnitsky
Lexi Rudnitsky (1972-2005) grew up outside of Boston. She studied at Brown University and Columbia University, where she wrote poetry and cultivated a profound relationship with a lineage of women poets that extends from Muriel Rukeyser to Heather McHugh. Her own poems exhibit both a playful love of language and a fierce conscience. Her writing appeared in The Antioch Review, Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art, The Nation, The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Pequod, and The Western Humanities Review. In 2004, she won the Milton Kessler Memorial Prize for Poetry from Harpur Palate. She is the author of a book of poems, A Doorless Knocking into Night (Mid-List Press, 2005).
