Upcoming Reading

So EXCITED to announce that I’ll be the featured reader at The Poetry Salon this coming Tuesday, October 8. I’d love to see anyone and everyone at Uncharted Books at 7pm. We’ll be in my old neighborhood, Andersonville, AND it will be mere days before my birthday! (WHAAAAT?!) Sure, you can buy me a drink afterward. (Twist my arm, why don’t you!)


Two Upcoming Readings…One with Art!

For real! I’ll be one of five readers at the Catherine Edelman Gallery’s monthly event Art Speaks! Come on out September 14, from Noon to 1:00 pm to hear poetry, prose, and possibly some experimental performancey type stuff, while also perusing some freaking fantabulous art. This event has everything!

If you’re affiliated with the English Department or the LatinX program at UIC, drop by the Latino Cultural Center at 6:30 on September 19 where I and a couple other PhD students in the Program for Writers will be reading with Javier Zamora. (Woot! Woot!)

And the Winner Is…

Hey, Hey! Guess who won the David Diamond Student Writing Prize from The Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature! That’s right!

I’m incredibly honored to be recognized by a society I so much admire. Talk about validation!

Be on the lookout for the winning poem, “Witness,” in the 2019 issue of MidAmerica. Now, if you don’t mind, I’ll be over here basking in the fact that I’m kind of a big deal. ;-D
