Jenni B. Baker

Jenni B. Baker is the poet behind Erasing Infinite, a multi-year project in which she creates erasures from Infinite Jest, page by page. Methods and motivations behind her madness have been detailed at The Huffington Post, The Howling Fantods, BuzzFeed and Creative Thresholds. In her spare time, she spends entirely too many hours scouring the web for obscure historical documents to manipulate into new creative work. Her chapbook, Comings / Goings, a collection of poems generated by applying Oulipian constrained writing techniques to Washington Post articles, was released in 2015. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of The Found Poetry Review, which published its “W/R/T David Foster Wallace” issue on the fifth anniversary of Wallace’s passing.

She lives in Bethesda, MD, with her boyfriend and her cat Ulysses, who prefers to be called “The Boss.”
