With Kevin Killian, he edited the Kenning Anthology of Poets Theater : 1945-1985.

Along with his partner Sara Larsen, David produced over sixty issues of the xerox periodical TRY!, featuring the work of dozens of contemporary writers. Part of the editorial collective which produced the daily Oscar Grant Plaza Gazette during Occupy Oakland, he now works with the Bay Area Public Schools to promote free & radical education. He makes his living as a bookseller.

(Leslie Flint Presents is a series of readings, each of which features a single poet presenting at uncommon length. The first Leslie Flint was Joseph Bradshaw; the current Leslie Flint is Jamie Townsend. In this case, Ian Dreiblatt will wear the Leslie Flint wig for the night, because Jamie's out of town.)
