2021 was a pretty productive and busy year, pandemic aside. I’m taking a moment to celebrate the good that came out of the past year and am grateful to everyone that supported my work this past year.
I published Virga in August. It was reviewed in Georgia Review, Hong Kong Review, and Hunger Mountain and also highlighted in The Rumpus, Ms. Magazine, Poets & Writers, Critical Flame, International Examiner, Shelf Awareness and Spine Magazine.
I presented my work at the Montana Book Festival, UCR Writers Week, University of San Francisco, Vermont College of Fine Arts, and launched Virga at Elliot Bay Books.
I made poetry films with David Ian Bickley that screened at Northwest Film Forum, Project Lazaretta in Greece, plus the Re-Vision Performing Arts Festival in Belfast.
I contributed a poetry film to a group show, Paths Intertwined, at The Wing Luke Museum.
I created commissioned work for The Slants Foundation in collaboration with jeli Ibrahim Arsalan.
I taught for Vermont College of Fine Art and the Tualatatin Valley Creates art incubator program.
I continued hosting and producing Lyric World, my podcast with poets and landed my dream job at Town Hall Seattle.
I completed productive residencies at Hypatia-in-the-Woods and Centrum Foundation.
Looking forward to whatever 2022 brings..
