Writers Recommend

Check out this micro-essay about tarantulas, writing, and existential dread up at Poets & Writers this week, part of a series in which writers offer other writers tips for finding inspiration when they feel stuck. Or, in my case, invite folks into a panic room of one, because sometimes having company helps. Right? Right.

Book Announcement!

I am over the moon to announce that my second book comes out this November from Persea Books. Arrhythmia can be pre-ordered NOW, through Indiebound. Also in the works: an aerial + poetry video moment, and possible actual real-person events this fall. Stay tuned.

Poeming in Italy

I am unbelievably honored to be in residence for the next two months at Civitella Ranieri, in Umbria, Italy, with a jaw-droppingly talented cohort of artists, composers, and writers from around the world. Also, watch out for new poems coming out soon in SpoKe and december magazines. Photo credit Deb Willis.
