I am a writer of poetry and prose. My latest book, How Is Travel a Folded Form?, appeared in 2018 from Saddle Road Press. I also have a new chapbook, published by Magnificent Field, and another forthcoming in 2020 from Dancing Girl Press. Recent prose appears at Entropy, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and the Chicago Review of Books.
Many of my previous projects were collaborations, notably with Kate Schapira and Jen Tynes. My writing often moves among questions about genre, history, and what exactly humans are up to on the planet. Some of my projects have explored performance, visual and sound elements, chance operations, and other fertile disruptions.
I am also a working writer. Local journalism is my bread and butter, and I have written essays and interviews for Taproot, LongReads, The Rumpus and The Millions. I welcome queries, proposals, and invitations.
Born and raised in southwestern Pennsylvania, I earned a BA at Oberlin College and hold an MFA in poetry from Brown University. I live in the Blue Ridge of central Virginia with my husband and two daughters.
