About Me

A native of Baltimore, MD, I now live in Cambridge, MA, where I write and make books..

I earned MFAs in Creative Writing and Book Arts, both from the University of Alabama. 

Formerly the Editor of Black Warrior Review, I now serve as Creative Nonfiction Editor for Cherry Tree. From 2016-2018, I worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Washington College, where I taught classes in creative writing, book arts, and composition. My chapbook, None of Us Know Any Stories, is available from dancing girl press. My manuscript, Wendy Wendy Wendy, was a finalist for the University of Akron book prize in 2018, and I am still seeking a good home for it..

I make artist’s books as Graveyard House Press.

Graveyard House Press
gives feminist poetry life.

I lived in a graveyard in Alabama for five years.
Now, I curate and write poetry with a pulse. 

Traditional bookmaking craft allows me to bring you books that enrich the act of reading. Papermaking, letterpress printing, and hand bookbinding are labor-intensive arts that engage me physically and mentally.

These arts give words the tooth and tenacity to make an impression.
