MFA Creative Writing in Poetry, Georgia State University

Professional Background, Scholarship Highlights
I have published numerous poems in journals and many chapbooks of poems, three of which have been released by Dancing Girl Press. My latest chapbook will be released this year (2017) and is called After New Ambiance. I’ve also published many book reviews of other poets’ work.
Service to Country, Community
I used to host a reading series where people could read their work at a local coffeehouse in Atlanta. It was a fun literary experience that I was part of, in many incarnations and with much help, for many years.
I have two cats named Sasha and Sonya, and I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. I would go there and take my now-deceased dog with me to meet and greet the other animals.
