Carol Dine’s book of poems, Orange Night, accompanied by the images of acclaimed artist and Holocaust survivor, Samuel Bak, was published in 2014 by Pucker Art Publications and distributed by Syracuse University Press. About Orange Night, author James Carroll wrote: “Rarely have visual and literary expressions so wonderfully complemented one another: a fugue of echoes and melodies and afterimages all in the service of a moving illumination of the human condition.”  

Her book Van Gogh in Poems was published in 2009 by The Bitter Oleander Press. Dine was invited by the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, to give a reading in conjunction with the exhibition of Van Gogh’s letters. Acclaimed art critic John Berger said of Dine’s book, “Her words are strung on Vincent’s life-line.” 

Her memoir in prose and poetry, Places in the Bone (Rutgers University Press, 2005), discusses the redemptive power of art. About the memoir, Norman Mailer wrote: (Dine’s) prose is a poet’s prose, often beautiful.” She has published two other poetry collections, and her work appears in literary magazines, including Aesthetica Creative Arts Annual, UK, Alehouse, Blue Mesa Review, Boulevard, Bitter Oleander, Lilith and Salamander; and anthologies, including “Poems Against War: Bending Toward Justice.”  
Dine has been a resident at the MacDowell Colony,Yaddo, Ragdale, and the Wurlitzer Foundation. She received a grant from the Money for Women/Barbara Deming Memorial Fund and the Sword of Hope Award from the American Cancer Society. She teaches writing at Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Boston.
