I'm a speculative (and other!) fiction writer who's all about hedge mazes, queer love, and found forms. My role models include Clarion superstars Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link as well as Aimee Bender, Steven Millhauser, and Sarah Waters. My fiction has appeared/is forthcoming in Inch, Ninth Letter, and The Rumpus, and my favorite non-writing activities include cooking and baking, visiting bookstores, and drinking tea.

I'm going for 1,000 words/day five days/week over the course of the Write-a-thon.
I'm participating in Write-a-thon 2019 to do my part for this outrageously talented, wonderfully welcoming, and intellectually badass community. It's been three years since my Clarion summer, and I still feel so lucky to have spent six weeks writing and learning with the class of 2016. Having been the beneficiary of alumni donations, I'm looking forward to paying it forward in order to ensure that Clarion can continue to be a reality for a diverse group of writers from varied backgrounds.
