I am a writer of poetry and creative non-fiction and sometimes fiction, as well as scholarship on trauma and literature.
My creative non-fiction project, Stars Need Counting: Essays on Suicide, with Gordon Hill Press, has just been published. Several essays from this collection were nominated for CNF awards at The New Quarterly and The Malahat Review. My most recent collection of poetry, This Real (Pedlar Press 2017) was long-listed for the League of Canadian Poet’s Raymond Souster Award. My poetry has appeared recently in The Capilano Review, experiment-o, and Hamilton Arts and Literature and is forthcoming in Wordgathering.
