Bio

I am a poet and witch from eastern North Carolina. Anchored by site-specific meditation and performance, my practice investigates spirituality, queer power, eco-consciousness, and questions of home. Witch, my first book of poetry, is forthcoming from Alice James Books in April 2020.

I am the recipient of fellowships and residencies from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Hemera Foundation, and the Wormfarm Institute, and poems appear in Glass, High Chair, and Poetry Northwest (forthcoming), among other journals. Wig Heavier Than A Boot, my collaborative project with photographer David Johnson, has been exhibited in St. Louis and Central Texas, and online at Photo-emphasis (link).

I received my MFA Writing from Washington University in St. Louis and BA English from Tulane University (New Orleans). These two cities along the Mississippi River continue to resonate, even as my practice pulls me towards the sea.
