I'm mainly a poet, though I also edit & write articles for Elyssar Press. Right now, I'm a graduate student in creative writing and working on a poetry manuscript that is in the submission process.
In this chapbook, I am exploring memories filtered by depression. I hope to challenge notions of "wild" and "wellness" while exploring pockets of habitat, whether domestic and exterior to the home environment. My goal is to expand conversations around mental health.
This is my favorite part of writing: the community of writers sharing space and creating together. I offer three main workshops right now: Writing the Self Wild, Writing to Heal, and Poetry & Placemaking for Educators. Please contact me for customized workshops and retreats.
