Hi. I'm a writer, journalist and researcher. 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.
**If you've written to me in response to my Long Covid essay in HuffPost, please know I might not be able to reply, but I have read all your messages and so appreciate your taking the time to reach out. I am grateful (and a bit overwhelmed) by the outpouring of support and suggestions I've received! Hang in there!
