ABOUT ME

I’ve cleaned motel rooms, managed a citizen journalism project based in Sudan, waitressed the night-shift, taught creative writing at both the high school and university levels, volunteered at a carousel museum, and ghostwrote for a French philosopher. Most recently I’m a 2014 Emerging Poets Fellow at Poets House and a 2014 recipient of the Amy Prize from Poets & Writers. I live in Brooklyn with my boyfriend and our two cats, Flannery and Bishop. I’m writing a book of nonfiction involving a necronym, psychosis, and an artificial eye. An excerpted version is forthcoming in the Believer.

Writing

Diabolical birdhouses, erasure, the Pythagorean Principle of Harmony, Emily Dickinson, etc
