Good news, catching up edition

My essay, “Jeans, Motherhood, and the Myth of Sisyphus,” was named one of The Best Stories by Women in 2017 by Bustle Magazine!  

My poetry manuscript, The Falls, was named a semifinalist for the Wisconsin Poetry Series’ Brittingham and Felix Pollak Prizes, the Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize offered by Persea Books, and the 2017 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry First Book Award. I’m very grateful for this encouragement, and I hope that The Falls will find its right home soon.

My poem,“Landscape with Ex-Husband Lingering,” was nominated for the 2017 Best of the Net Anthology by Gulf Stream Literary Magazine!

I also have poems and essays out recently in At Length, New Ohio Review, Public Pool, and Two Horatio #2 Chapbook. Thank you to the editors of these journals for believing in my work.
