Tonight I got to hear Maggie Smith speak about the process of writing her beautiful new memoir, You Could Make This Place Beautiful. An incredible experience and so many great tidbits to help with writing and life.

Hello all! So happy to announce that I’m featured in the newest episode of The Landscape Nerd Podcast! The episode is called Interdisciplinary: Poetry and Landscape.

Poetry that Responds // New Poem!
Due to the Covid-19 quarantine in Ohio, the Ekphrastacy April 2020 event at Heights Arts in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was cancelled. Fortunately the staff at HA got together and had us poets record our poems for a virtual ekphrastacy!
My poem “Invisible Storm” is up on Heights Arts’ website. It was inspired by “Black Horse” by Jean Hoffman.
Today was the Cleveland Drafts Literary Crawl in Tremont. I had an amazing time and was so grateful to share in the Cleveland literary community. I read alongside Joe Kapitan, Phyllis Levine, and Ali McClain at Round 2. We all have very different styles and voices, and our work was a great sampling of what Cleveland writers can do. Thank you to everyone who came to support me, thank you to the CSU Poetry Center for hosting our portion of the reading, and thank you to Cleveland Drafts and Brews and Prose for putting on this amazing event!
Prepare your calendars! On October 20th, Brews and Prose will host (along with many wonderful Lit organizations) Cleveland Drafts, a one day Lit Crawl in Tremont.
I will be reading alongside many talented Cleveland writers during this festival! More info here!
