Marianne Boruch’s ten books of poetry include The Anti-Grief (Copper Canyon Press, 2019). She has written three essay collections about poetry, most recently The Little Death of Self (University of Michigan Press, 2017), and a memoir, The Glimpse Traveler (Indiana University Press, 2011). An eleventh collection, Bestiary Dark, is forthcoming from Copper Canyon. Among her honours are the Cecil Hemley Award from the Poetry Society of America, the Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Award, fellowships/residencies from the Fulbright Commission (in Scotland and Australia), the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center, MacDowell, Yaddo, Djerassi, the Anderson Center (Red Wing, MN), and two American national parks (Denali and Isle Royale). Going rogue and emeritus in 2018 from Purdue University where she established the MFA program in 1987, Boruch continues to teach in the graduate low-residency Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, Swannanoa, NC.
