About

Writer.

I’m the author of Laila: Held for a Moment, forthcoming from Kat Biggie Press in October 2022. I earned my MFA in Creative Writing at Drexel University, where I also teach rhetoric and composition. In 2020, my memoir excerpt was selected as a finalist for The Southampton Review Nonfiction Prize, and subsequently, portions of my memoir have appeared in Barren MagazineMarco MagazineThe SF Creative Writing Institute, and blogs. I also won Barren Magazine’s December Instagram Poetry Contest.
      I’m a Tin House Workshop graduate (Summer 2021), and I have participated in writing workshops such as the Southampton Writer’s Conference and The Art of the Story with Narrative Magazine. I also present my academic research on pregnancy and infant loss at academic conferences, such as the Conference on Community Writing.
