Two poems in the new issue of Diode

Diode–long a favorite online journal of mine–has been kind enough to publish two poems of mine, including one that will be in Disappearing, Inc. next Spring, in their new issue. Hope you’ll check them out, along with the work of many other fine poets in the issue–Elizabeth Scanlon, Glenn Shaheen, Donna Vorreyer, and many more.

And yes, that poem is supposed to disappear 🙂



Disappearing, Inc. forthcoming from Gold Wake Press in early 2019

I’m a little beside myself, filled with a strange energy—three parts excitement, one part disbelief—but I can share that my first full-length collection of poetry, Disappearing, Inc., will be published in early 2019 by the amazing independent publisher Gold Wake Press.


I have endless thanks to give: to Kyle McCord and Nick Courtright as well as all the other folks at GW for embarking on this journey with me; to the editors at journals that have supported and published me; to fellow poets for writing alongside me; to friends and family for putting up with me while I feverishly wrote and chased the dream of putting a book out into the world; and plenty more. But for now, I just say: thanks. Thank you and stay tuned for more—I’ll share details on release dates, preorders, readings, and more, as they become available.

See you soon.


Interview at Superstition Review’s blog

I was interviewed by my musician and teacher friend, Kylie Brown, for Superstition Review’s Authors Talk series about my trio of poems in the journal’s newest issue! This conversation was a blast; it was fun to hear Kylie’s take on these poems and together unpack them, discussing completeness (and incompleteness), the inherent limits of language, and a lot more. Hope you’ll check it out here.
