I am a Senior Lecturer in Writing at Indiana University Southeast, where I teach instrumental, academic, and creative writing. I earned an MA in creative writing/literature from the University of Louisville, and completed most of the Ph.D. there (ABD) in Composition and Rhetoric. Last fall I completed an MFA in poetry at the Spalding University Low-Residency Program where I worked with poets Maureen Morehead, Debra Kang-Dean, Molly Peacock, Randall Horton, and Greg Pape. At the Ropewalk residency prior to this, I had the pleasure of working with Stephen Dobyns, who recommended me to the Spalding and IU Bloomington MFA programs.
To date, I've been published in A Narrow Fellow (forthcoming) NULU Handwritten, Pegasus, The Thomas Merton Seasonal, The Louisville Review, Scribblers on the Roof, New Southerner, Poetica, and The New Sound: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Art and Literature (forthcoming). I also direct the Writers Workshop Project (www.the-wwp.com).
