Nice to meet you!
I'm a writer and editor based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania whose recent interests include Appalachian history, especially that of its women residents, Forest County and the PA Wilds, conservation and forest stewardship, parenting, and art on paper, particularly correspondence art. I am honored to be the recipient of a 2022 Curious Creators Grant and the winner of the Five South Spring 2022 poetry contest. My work was recently nominated for inclusion in The Best Small Fictions 2023. I'm also the Engagement Editor at Belt Magazine.
