Karen Head

Author's Bio

Karen Head is the author of Sassing (WordTech Press, 2009), My Paris Year (All Nations Press, forthcoming September 2008) and Shadow Boxes (All Nations Press, 2003). Her poetry has appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. As a scholar of contemporary American poetry, she has begun to explore the connections between traditional text-based poetry and digitally-enhanced poetry, an exploration that involves her in a number of projects being conducted in the Wesley Center for New Media at Georgia Tech. Her digital poetry was featured at the E-Poetry 2007 festival in Paris. Her most recent digital project was a collaborative exquisite corpse created via Twitter with 12 other poets; “Monumental” was detailed in a TIME online mini-documentary. In July 2016, she became the new editor of the Atlanta Review.
