Her poems and essays have appeared or are forthcoming in Tin House, Crazyhorse, The New York Times, Gulf Coast, Ninth Letter, Pleiades, Image, Colorado Review, The Rumpus and elsewhere. She’s been the recipient of fellowships and scholarships from the Civitella Ranieri foundation, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and the University of Mississippi, where she was a John and Renée Grisham fellow.

She lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, where she is the 2017-2018 Jeff Baskin Writers Fellow at the Oxford American magazine, and working on a collection of essays about disability, poetry, religion, and the American South. With the writer Susannah Nevison, she’s also at work on a collaborative collection of poems.


The Argenta Reading Series seeks to connect writers directly with their audience, to appreciate the written word, and understand better the person behind those words. Readings are monthly, in the Argenta United Methodist Church meeting space, and admission is free at all readings unless otherwise noted, though the series is supported by your donations and through a partnership with the William F. Laman Public Library of North Little Rock.
