Winter Update & Happy 2018!

Hi All,

I'd like to start by thanking everyone who has helped carve out space to work diligently on my ambitious new project. I hope to start rolling out poems from it in the next few months as revisions are finalized. Second, I'd like to thank the amazing folks at Beloit Poetry Journal for naming me a semifinalist for the Adrienne Rich Prize. It is truly an honor to be counted in such a fine group. I'd also like to thank American Literary Review, Laurel Review and Connotation Press for recently publishing my work. Enough about me though. Time for some student accomplishments!
