In 2019, I hope to continue sending out poems, working on my manuscript, and writing as much as I can. Spring semester is usually most productive because of National Poetry Month.

Updates for Fall/Winter

I have three poems up at Nice Cage in Issue 007! Please head there and take a read.

Additionally, I have a poem nominated for a Pushcart Prize! “Last Note Slipped Under the Mattress” in Gordon Square Review, Issue 2. If you haven’t already, you can read it here!

And that poem, as well as “The Pyre” in sidereal magazine are nominated for Best of Net 2018!



Today was the Cleveland Drafts Literary Crawl in Tremont. I had an amazing time and was so grateful to share in the Cleveland literary community. I read alongside Joe Kapitan, Phyllis Levine, and Ali McClain at Round 2. We all have very different styles and voices, and our work was a great sampling of what Cleveland writers can do. Thank you to everyone who came to support me, thank you to the CSU Poetry Center for hosting our portion of the reading, and thank you to Cleveland Drafts and Brews and Prose for putting on this amazing event!

Long Poem Debut

Happy meteorological fall season!

I have a few submissions out, including the long book, so cross your fingers for STAR FACTORY.  But in the mean time, the wonderful editors over at Noble/Gas Qtrly have just released Issue 205.3 which is full of amazing work and a long poem by yours truly. Go read and enjoy my longest poem ever published, titled “Color Theory.”

Micro-Chap Out Now!

My debut micro-chapbook, SPACE SPECTACULAR, is out today from Ghost City Press!

The chap is free on their website, and any donations you make will come directly to me.

SPACE SPECTACULAR is a collection of poems that enact a sort of call and response between Earth and Space. Some of the poems suppose what happens outside of our galaxy and some call out to other planets in our solar system. It was an incredible experience to research and write these poems, many of which appear in my longer manuscript, STAR FACTORY, which is currently looking for a home.

Thank you to the wonderful editors at Ghost City Press and to all my current and future readers.

I hope you enjoy!
