I am a poet and educator with an MFA in Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Fascinated by the intersections of poetry, performance, and mindfulness, I teach creative writing workshops, help students prepare for public readings, and have led courses on poetry as a spiritual (nonreligious) practice. I've also been known to direct school plays and curate original student performance pieces. I'm based in Vermont and have taught in partnership with the Vermont Arts Council, Flynn Arts, The New England Young Writers Conference, VSA Vermont, and countless schools. I work with all ages and will travel throughout the region. Some of my courses are also available online. In general, for in-person workshops and residencies I charge $250/day. This is a negotiable rate and does not account for travel costs.
In addition to teaching, I book public readings. My poems have received the Laura J. Spooner Prize and the Corrine Eastman Davis Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of Vermont and have appeared in journals, anthologies, and art displays.
