April 10, 2014 - IAS faculty member Amaranth Borsuk kept busy over the spring break, giving readings and talks in three states. She presented her forthcoming hybrid print/digital collaboration Abra at a research in progress talk at UW Bothell. She then travelled to Portland to read poems from a forthcoming book for the If Not For Kidnap reading series and to Lexington, Virginia, to speak at the Virginia Military Institute, where she also took part in a writing workshop with cadets in Major Julie Phillips Brown's poetry class. Her last stop was San Diego, to perform and speak about her poetics at "New Literature On and Between Screens: An Electronic Literature Reading Event" as part of the Cal State San Marcos Arts & Lectures series. Borsuk has several new publications, including collaborative work in Barzakh and her libretto "The Familiar Spirit," which appears in the latest issue of Witness. A review of her chapbook Tonal Saw just appeared in The Volta. In addition to these creative works, her talk "Electrifying Literature" was published in the Electronic Book Review among the proceedings of the 2012 Electronic Literature Organization Conference.
