Hello! Thanks for your interest. I love people who read poems, even if only occasionally. If you’re wondering about books, my first collection, Real Daughter, won Unicorn Press’s 2017 First Book Award and will be available in October 2018. Meanwhile, you can find some of my poems in various print and online journals, linked or listed HERE.

About me: I have an MFA in creative writing from Portland State University (2013) and live in Oregon,  though  I recently spent a year in North Carolina as a resident associate at the National Humanities Center (a lovely place with lovely people). I’m now a freelance copy editor and writing mentor. I’ve given readings and writing workshops in three states, Canada, and France. When I can, I like to travel, hike, camp, read, and write.

Please contact me if  if you are interested in my editing/mentoring services or want to schedule a reading or workshop.
