Hello. I am a writer and literary translator. My work has appeared in North American Review, Guernica, Waxwing, Salamander, Fence, and in some other literary magazines. It has also been featured on The Slowdown, a poetry podcast formerly hosted by Ada Limón. I was awarded the James Dickey Poetry Prize at Five Points in 2017 and I’ve received fellowship support from the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and the Nebraska Arts Council. Sugar Work, my first full-length poetry collection, was the Editor's Choice for the 2020 Alice James Book Award. I am originally from Atlanta, but now live in Nebraska where I am finishing a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which means I’m working on a second book and a book of poems in translation. I earned a BA in Spanish from Westmont College and an MFA in Poetry from Bennington College.
