Karen’s 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.
