a more perfect Union

My new collection, a more perfect Union, will be available in February of 2021 from Mad Creek Books, an imprint of Ohio State University Press.  The manuscript was selected by Kathy Fagan for the 2019 OSU Journal/Charles B. Wheeler Poetry Prize. 


Some poems from this book have been published in Harvard Review, Kestrel, Natural BridgePacific Literary ReviewPankPoetry Ireland Review,Tin House, and upcoming in Rosebud and Kenyon Review

I will debut the cover in the fall. The cover photo was taken by Mignonette Dooley Johnson and the book cover was designed by Angela Moody.

Interesting note: Tracy Fuad was part of my cohort at Hedgebrook in August of 2018! Congrats to her!
