I have some exciting news to share! This summer Coast|NoCoast, an independent press based in Seattle, is publishing my new chapbook, “Facing the Mirror: An Essay.” The chapbook is a long prose poem concerning the mirror, its history, and my fraught relationship with it as someone who struggles with a mental disorder known as dermatillomania. (I now know way too many factoids about mirrors. Still waiting for the post-pandemic cocktail parties at which this knowledge will prove useful.) I’ll share more details about how you can buy your copy of my chapbook when they’re available!
Here is a video of me reading from the beginning of the chapbook for the Utah Poetry Festival. Many thanks to Utah Humanities’ Center for the Book and Utah Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal for featuring me and my writing, and happy National Poetry Month!
