About Me

I am a southern poet, anxiety of my home’s bigotry be damned. It’s not all bad, and I aim to speak for the better parts as well as point to the faults. That said, I’m working on my first collection, which is a slow go, but exciting nonetheless.

I am the Poetry Editor at cahoodaloodaling, a collaborative publication; and formerly an Associate Editor at Pankhearst, an independent writers collective, where I edited the stunning anthology: America Is Not the World.

Outside of writing, I’m a firm believer in travel. Abandoning one’s safety zone is the best way to rid ourselves of the ignorance our homes tempt us with. It is through getting lost and wandering the backroads of my country that I’ve developed an even stronger appreciation of my distant neighbors.

Above all, I’m an aunt to the most wonderful little boy and I’ve never taken any role more seriously in my life.
