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.

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

My debut poetry book, The High Shelf was published by The Word Works in the fall of 2019.  The book explores early motherhood, environmental and social destruction, trauma and healing. Jericho Brown wrote about the book “what a tender book. What a way to tell the truth while still maintaining tenderness.”

My poetry and essays have been published in more than eighty 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.

My essay “The Language of Silence: Listening to the Body” was published in the anthology The Anatomy of Silence: 26 stories about all the sh*t that gets in the way of talking about sexual violence. 

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

I’ve 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
