Greetings! I’m a poet and Professor of English at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC.
I have three collections of poetry published:
Moon on the Meadow (Washington, DC: Gallaudet University Press), 2008
Two Winters (Georgetown, KY: Finishing Line Press), 2011
Mother Mail is forthcoming from Hermeneutic Chaos Press in early 2017.
My work has also appeared in several collections (see Anthology Page tab).
For a full listing of all my literary journals publications, please open the Resume page and scroll down to the publications section.
I give poetry readings, book signings, workshops and lectures to interested members of book clubs, in public libraries, bookstores and cafes.
My B.A. (1977) and M.A. (1979) are in American Literature, drama and women’s studies from Eastern Michigan University. My Ph.D. is in Interdisciplinary Studies (English, Philosophy and Sociology) from Michigan State University (1985).
I’m also a Celtic musician (dulcimer, harp, guitar) and knitter.
I’m married to David Borsheim, have several children and grandchildren, and enjoy all kinds of music, film, dance, classic novels and poetry, and am fluent in American Sign Language.
Welcome to my page!
Pia Taavila-Borsheim, Ph.D.
