Originally from Vermont, I now live in North Carolina. My work can be found in recent issues of REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters, The Jabberwock Review, The Emerson Review, Storyglossia, The MacGuffin, Confrontation, Passages North, SmokeLong Quarterly, elimae, wigleaf, Pank, and Gargoyle #57, among others. One of my stories has been translated into Farsi by Asadollah Amraee, and many others by Jalil Jafari, two of which have been published in the Iranian journal, Golestaneh Magazine. Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. I'm also working on two novels and a short story collection. In 2011, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.

Introducing: The Collagist

The new online literary journal produced by Dzanc books!!

I imagine this journal is going to be amazing since it has Dzanc Books behind it as well as Matt Bell as editor and Mathew Olzman as poetry editor.

Read This: Freight Stories

There's a new issue out and it has a piece by one of my very favorite writers: Alicia Gifford.
