Whew! Travel has (obviously) come to a halt, and as as result, I’ve been busy with editing and submitting my creative writing. I almost forgot to update y’all, but I’m happy that some poems have been accepted into these journals.
I was accepted to two international writing residencies! One in Iceland, and one in Finland, planned for 2021. A lot can change before then, but I’ve been informed that I can be granted an exemption due to business as long as I follow appropriate protocol, which I will certainly do. Here’s hoping that there will be a reliable vaccine soon, that things improve with containing the virus, and that travel can safely resume.
In Iceland back in 2016, and the answer is YES, about 47 of them.
I’ve been to Iceland before, but if anyone has any recommendations for Finland, I’m all ears! Or, any tips for a productive writing residency, books to bring, prompts, etc.?
Happy wandering & writing,
Ecstatic that my longest sectioned poem, “Redbird,” has found a home within this special Australian journal.
I’m all about women empowerment, and this feels like a good fit for such a vulnerable and important poem.
This newest issue of Not Very Quiet is set to launch tomorrow, September 14th. There is also an audio file, so you can hear me read, if you’d prefer.
Two of my poems are up on The Daily Drunk magazine.
I got the acceptance e-mail 10 minutes after I sent the submission, which was a massively wonderful surprise, and definitely a record for me!
Read them here.
Keep writing & wandering,

Delighted to share that my poem, Begin Again, is showcased in this anthology! Check out Pennsylvania’s Best Emerging Poets here or by clicking the photo below.
I have always been drawn to the fearless, unapologetic, strong women who roar: the ones that seek out adventures on their own, who carve their own path with their experiences, who shape the world with their ideas, and shake it with their voices.
I am honored to have a poem included here in this #MeToo e-Book- such an important project giving a voice to women everywhere.
Happy to have two poems, “The Delivery” and “Good Girl” in Pink Panther Magazine! Check ’em out:
