September 5 at 6PM at Kelly Writer's House in Philly, I have the pleasure of reading with some of the amazing writers that contributed to the anthology Who Will Speak for America, edited by Stephanie Feldman and Nathaniel Popkin. More details when they become available.

Also, the amazing poetry summer series We (Too) are Philly has put together a poetry sampler edited by Raena Shifali of poetry by people of color. Find it here.

So grateful to Cleveland State University for choosing Continuity as a finalist for their book competition. Lots of wonderful peers and friends in company with me there.

I have poems out this summer in the new jubilat, Crazyhorse, Bennington Review, and will have three poems in BOMB Online towards the end of summer. Thanks to those editors!

My fall book, Futureless Languages is with the editors as is the spring book, Continuity. Very excited to be putting out what is a kind of "double album". Hope you will celebrate the books coming out this fall or spring.

Throwback photo to me in Laugarvatn Iceland in July 2017. What an amazing time.

I'm reading at Dahlek in Philadelphia on June 20th with Diana Arterian at 7PM.

This summer I'm working on final edits for Continuity (Octopus 2019) and Futureless Languages (working title) (Radiator Press 2018). Excited to have new work to share.
