current projects

My current manuscript project explores ideas of hauntings, ghosts, and the uncanny—from discarded shoes to fossils to photographs to the still-active Facebook profiles of the deceased. More broadly, the poems in the manuscript consider how the inherent contradictions and dissonances of our personal and public histories are present in our daily lives. In support of this project, I was awarded a 2017 fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Poems from the project have been published or are forthcoming in jubilat, Passages North, BOAAT, Grist, the Academy of American Poets Poem-a-Day, and on the NEA website.
