Karen Head is the author of Sassing (WordTech Press, 2009), My Paris
Year (All Nations Press, 2008) and Shadow Boxes (All
Nations Press, 2003). Her poetry appears in a number of national and international journals and anthologies. As a artist, and 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 creative projects being conducted in the Wesley Center for New Media at Georgia Tech. Her first digital poetry project, Poetic Rub,
was featured at the E-Poetry 2007 festival in Paris. Her most recent digital project was a collaborative exquisite corpse poem created via Twitter while she stood atop the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square as part of Antony Gormley’s One and Other Project; her poetry project, “Monumental” was detailed in a TIME online mini-documentary. Her poem "Three Moments" was the winner of the 2011 Oxford International Women's Festival Poetry Prize. She teaches at Georgia Tech and serves on the Poetry Atlanta Board.
