about

I am a poet and editor (she/her) living in Charleston, South Carolina. Over the past five years I have worked with dozens of writers and authors across genres and styles to develop their individual pieces and manuscripts. Writers I’ve worked with have been featured in Best Undergraduate Writing, The Adroit Journal, ForbesBooks, Poetry Quarterly, Waccamaw, and others, and have been nominated for multiple Editor’s Lists and finalist positions.

My own work has been featured in or is forthcoming in publications such as Prairie Schooner, Poetry Quarterly, Fall Lines Magazine, Grist, and others. I have my BA in English from the College of Charleston and currently serve as an editorial manager at a publishing company where I work with authors to develop voice, style, and tone over full-length manuscripts.

In January of 2019 I ran my first marathon in just a hair over five hours and I’m currently working on getting faster for the next one.

Through the end of 2020 I am offering free résumé and cover letter assessments for all members of the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. I am also accepting college essays and personal statements. Portfolio reviews available at discounted rates. Please contact me for more information and see my editorial services page for additional service offerings.
