My Publications



 I invite you to explore some of my writing.

I primarily write creative nonfiction and poetry. My work explores questions of being, social engagement, love, trauma, healing, what it means to be a woman, mother, person.

I try to create pieces that are beautiful and that can have some positive impact.

And my writing is both a place for engagement and a space for freedom, play, and imagination.

I’m also a founding editor at Anchor, a spirituality and social justice magazine.

My poetry and essays have been published in more than sixty national publications including The New Yorker, American Poetry Review, slate, Spirituality and Health, Lions’ Roar, American Scholar, LA Review of Books, Harvard Review, Yale Review, Kenyon Review, The Boston Globe Magazine, The Southwest Review, Yes! Magazine, elephant journal, and many other places. I’ve won several awards for my work, including a PEN NE Discovery Award in Poetry.

I have also interviewed many thought leaders and artists, most of whom have had a big impact on my own life, including Snatam Kaur, France Moore Lappe, Sister Dhan Nhiem, Lewis Mehl Madrona, Martha Serpas, and others
