Nick Montfort programs computational poetry and other types of creative computing, from very small Commodore 64 BASIC and assembly pieces to computer-generated books. His practices involve constrained writing, collaboration, concrete poetry, and certain other conceptualisms. His computer-generated books of poetry in print include The Truelist (Counterpath); Autopia (Troll Thread); with collaborators, 2x6 (Les Figues); and #! (Counterpath). He has done more than fifty digital projects including The Deletionist (with Amaranth Borsuk and Jesper Juul), Sea and Spar Between (with Stephanie Strickland), and Taroko Gorge. Montfort edits the Counterpath series of computer-generated books Using Electricity. He has published six collaborative and individually-authored books with The MIT Press. He is professor of digital media at MIT, also teaches at the School for Poetic Computation, and lives in New York and Boston.
