WORDS OF WITNESS FELLOW in LITERARY NON-FICTION
Originally from New Mexico, I now teach and write in Missoula, Montana. I am a solo parent to two teens and we enjoy camping, hiking and reading together. My work has appeared in Tin House, Gay Magazine, The Kenyon Review , the essay anthology Greetings from Janeland (Cleis Press, 2017), The Rumpus, Orion, Indiana Review and Ms. Magazine , among others. I am the recipient of the creative nonfiction AWP Writers’ Conferences & Centers Award and was awarded a fellowship for the Summer Fishtrap Writers Workshop. I currently serve as a writing fellow with the Center for Community Change and write about economic and social justice issues. During my residency at Under the Volcano I will be working on a manuscript that examines the parallels between domestic violence and hydraulic fracturing.
