Hi. I'm a writer. My stories have appeared or are forthcoming in National Geographic, HuffPost, Salon, Playboy, Day One, and Harvard Review, among other publications. I've been awarded a Creative Writing Fulbright Fellowship to Italy, a MacDowell Arts Fellowship, a Durham Arts Council Emerging Artist Fellowship (2020), and a Bread Loaf Writers' Conference work-study scholarship, and was a finalist for a 2021 Sustainable Arts Foundation award. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Arkansas.

**Note: If you've written to me in response to my Long Covid essay in HuffPost, please understand that I might not be able to reply to your message, but I have read them all and appreciate your taking the time to reach out. I am so grateful (and a bit overwhelmed) by the outpouring of support and suggestions I've received!
