Dianne Borsenik is active in the northern Ohio poetry scene, and travels to read her poetry throughout the Midwest. She is a member of the Ohio Poetry Association, Literary Cleveland, and the Haiku Society of America.
Her work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including Main Street Rag, Chiron Review, Slipstream, and Rosebud, and in various galleries and projects, such as Heights Arts' Ekphrastacy and the Wick Poetry Center's Speak Peace—American Voices Respond to Vietnamese Children's Paintings. Actor Jonathan Frid (Barnabas Collins, Dark Shadows) used three of her poems in his one-man touring show Genesis of Evil. In both 2013 and 2014, she won first place in the Best Cleveland Poem Competition. In 2016, Crisis Chronicles Press published Age of Aquarius, and in 2019, Stubborn Mule Press published her second full-length collection, Raga for What Comes Next. Lit Youngstown printed her poem “Disco” on their tee shirts, which makes her feel like a rock star.
