My fiction’s appeared in Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, Washington Square, New England Review (forthcoming) and my short novel, Under the Small Lights is published by Miami University Press. My nonfiction’s appeared in Guernica, Raritan, Georgia Review, Catapult, Commonweal, New England Review, and Electric Literature where I’m a semi-regular columnist. Losing Music, my second book, will appear from Milkweed Editions——two of the book’s chapters were honorable mentions in Best American Essays 2015 and Best American Essays 2020. In the past I’ve worked as a theater director, ghostwriter, trash collector, copy editor, and publisher, as well as a teacher of environmental ethics, English literature, and history. From 2009 – 2017 I was Executive Editor at the book review site Open Letters Monthly. In recent years I’ve been a writer in residence at the Fort Lyon Homeless Shelter in Colorado and SPACE Gallery in Maine. In 2021 I’ll be one of several writers in residence at the James Merrill house in Stonington, Connecticut. I teach fiction writing at Lighthouse Writers Workshop.
