My essays and fiction have appeared in The Kenyon Review, The Rumpus, The Paris Review Daily, The Collagist, and elsewhere, and my opinions are in The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Millions, and The New York Times. I hold M.F.A. degrees in fiction and nonfiction, from Brooklyn College and the University of Iowa, respectively, and have received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, and the Elizabeth George Foundation, among others. I was the Robert P. Dana Emerging Writer Fellow at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, and the Provost's Postgraduate Visiting Writer at the University of Iowa.
Thanks to artist residencies, years of cabbage-for-breakfast, and the Affordable Care Act, I am spending the 2017-18 academic year on the road (aka the Nothing Nowhere year, the Rambling Woman year, my year at large...). The time is devoted to my longer works-in-progress.
