Mexico City, US
Poetry in English
Raised in New Jersey, I’m currently based in Mexico City, where I write poems and work as a freelance translator. Book-length work has been translated into Spanish and published in Mexico (Ediciones Antílope), Spain (Kriller71 Ediciones), and Argentina (Zindo & Gafuri and Audisea). My poems and translations have appeared in Poetry Northwest, PANK Magazine, 32 Poems, the Harvard Review, the Massachusetts Review, the Kenyon Review, The Common, Two Lines, The Offing, Waxwing, Asymptote, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and Tupelo Quarterly, among other publications. I’m an alumna of the Vermont Studio Center, the Banff Literary Translation Centre, and the Squaw Valley Community of Writers; I’ll be a resident at the Ragdale Foundation in Fall 2020. I’m currently working on a series of poems that explore questions of place, citizenship, political shame, and the relationship between Mexico and the US across several generations of my family. I love to sing and am trying to learn how to keep at least a modest percentage of my houseplants alive.
