Amaranth Borsuk

Amaranth Borsuk is a poet, scholar, and book artist whose work encompasses print and digital media, performance and installation. This spring, The MIT Press will publish her volume The Book, an examination of the technology we think we know intimately that considers it as object, content, idea, and interface. Her books of poetry include Pomegranate Eater (Kore Press, 2016); Between Page and Screen (SpringGun Press, 2016), a book of augmented-reality poems created with Brad Bouse; As We Know (Subito, 2014), an erasure collaboration with Andy Fitch; and Handiwork (Slope Editions, 2012). Her intermedia project Abra (1913 Press, 2016), created with Kate Durbin and Ian Hatcher, received an NEA-sponsored Expanded Artists’ Books grant from the Center for Book and Paper Arts and was issued in 2015 as a limited edition handmade book and free iPad/iPhone app. Amaranth is currently an assistant professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington, Bothell, where she recently became associate director of the MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics.
