Uri Rosenshine was born in Jerusalem and raised in New York City. He studied mixed media sculpture at The Art Students League of New York before going on to pursue an bachelor’s degree at Yale. There he completed a thesis in verse writing under Louise Glück and a thesis in philosophy with a focus on German Idealism and aesthetics under Martin Hägglund. He continues to reside in New Haven, Connecticut, where he works at a wine store and indulges in miscellaneous pursuits such as bookbinding and gardening. He draws inspiration for writing from the visual arts and philosophy, from his day job and the weather, and from his friends and family. He is passionate about the processes of composition and revision, and has hopes of becoming a full time writer. His first chapbook, Minutiae, was self-published in collaboration with Directangle Press and hand-bound by the author.
