You can read my work in The Washington Post, The Week, Al Jazeera, The Independent, Huffington Post, Craft Literary, Brevity, The Rumpus, Shenandoah, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Poet Lore, Fairy Tale Review, and many more newspapers, magazines, and literary journals. My writing has been included in the Wigleaf Top 50 and has been nominated for Best American Essays, The Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, Best Small Fictions, and Best Microfiction.

I edit novels and prose collections for Alan Squire Publishing. I’m the editor-in-chief at The ASP Bulletin and Porcupine Literary, and I edit privately for clients in all genres.

I have a Master of Fine Arts and a Master of Education, extensive teaching experience, and I love to speak with large and small groups about education, disability support, mental health, and all things writing! I currently teach creative writing, literature, and composition/rhetoric at American University and Marymount University. I have participated on and/or moderated panels at AWP, The Washington Writers Conference, The Writer’s Center, the 1455 Summer Literary Festival, Conversations and Connections, and more.
