Writing Write-Up

A couple updates since I’ve been back from my writing residency in Iceland:

I was a poetry finalist in the 2020-21 Lumiere Review Writing Contest, which honestly has been one of my highlights of this year so far!

I am thrilled that the anthology on Sh!t Men Say to Me: A Poetry Anthology in Response to Toxic Masculinity, which holds three of my poems, is out now. (I know we all could write a few poems on this topic…)

Levee Magazine also features my work in its April issue. I have been traveling, so I haven’t yet gotten to hold these publications in my hands, but will soon.

One of my new favorite poems I’ve written, “Etymology of a Middle Name,” was published in Kissing Dynamite. Read it here.

Another poem “The Night After the Procedure,” was given a home by the editors of Okay Donkey mag.

& as a reminder, you can always check out my publication list on my author website!

I’m a Poetry Finalist!

Waking up to an e-mail saying that I’m a finalist in a poetry contest is probably my favorite way to wake up. 10/10 recommend.

But really, it’s so hard to “make it” in this space (whatever that means), to feel like your words even mean anything sometimes, so to be recognized for them means everything to me. We’re all navigating our own struggles, and I’m really glad this vulnerable poem found such a great home. It’s included in Issue 4, which you can read here.

Many thanks again to all the editors of The Lumiere Review and to the judges!

Congratulations to the other winners, finalists, and contributors of this wonderful issue!
