Teaching Experience

In my classes, whether literature surveys or creative writing workshops, I invite my students to engage with each other as they investigate texts, seeing how they work and how they apply what they learn to their own writing.


I am a fiction writer who dabbles in poetry. I’m particularly interested in the short story and the prose poem (and the hybrid forms that borrow from each).

Selected Publications

My recent and forthcoming publications include short fiction and prose poetry in these journals:
•“Elegy” The Nation (2021)
•“Keepers of Bees” Ninth Letter (2021)
•“Aftermath” Phoebe (2021)
•“Landscape with Bathsheba” Ploughshares (2021)
•“The Thing About Relics” Ploughshares (2021)
•“The Queen of Sheba Sails for Home” Ploughshares (2021)
•“Elijah Fed by Ravens,” Rhino (2021)
•“What Else Are They Doing to the Bodies of the Dead?” Hayden’s Ferry Review Online (2020)
•“Winemaker,” The Southern Review (2020)
•“Leah, Unloved,” The Baltimore Review (2019)
•“Miriam Among the Reeds,” The Cincinnati Review (2019)
•“The Naming of Parts,” Threepenny Review (2018)


I’m eager to serve the department, college, and university in whatever ways I can.
