In 2015—with years of experience as the managing editor of Fugue journal and an associate editor for The Pisgah Review, along with racking up countless hours in writing workshops during my MFA in fiction—I had a sort of "ah-ha" moment.
Why does this matter to you? Well, if you're reading this, my guess is that you're probably a writer yourself and no doubt a bookworm. If you have a project that needs an extra set of eyes, let me know; I'd love to help!

Publishing & Editing Bio:
I have over 10 years of experience in the publishing world (editing, publishing, teaching fiction, nonfiction, and poetry). I’ve worked as a senior editor for the literary journal Fugue. At Fugue, I edited and published the work of renowned authors such as Ben Percy, David Shields, Kim Barnes, and two Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, Junot Diaz and Anthony Doerr.
My teaching experience includes working as a writing instructor at the university-level, teaching essay writing, fiction writing workshops, and business writing courses. During this time, I also continued my own writing practice, regularly publishing fiction and poetry in nationally recognized journals. My work has appeared in Tin House, Hobart, Puerto del Sol, The Chicago Quarterly Review, The Baltimore Review, Juked, and other literary magazines.
In addition to editing and publishing, I also have experience writing successful artist grants and proposals, which can be incredibly important for writers if they need funds to finish a project or just some quiet time at a writer’s retreat to finish a next novel.
