Writing

Tommy Pico picked my poem “Girl Descends Asunder” as the winner of the Black Warrior Review 2019 Poetry Contest, and my manuscript of the same title was a finalist for the 2019 Gasher Journal First-Book Scholarship! The award-winning poem will appear in BWR’s Winter/Spring 2019 issue (46.2). More of my writing is also forthcoming in Bad PonySugar House Review, and COAST|noCOAST.
