Eric ZORK Alan, a 9x National Slam Poet competitor, is probably best known for standing on chairs & 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 is slammaster for Westchester’s only Nationally certified Slam at the White Plains Public Library.
