 Interviews

Interested in a visit? 

I’ve given public readings and served on panels at colleges, high schools, and conventions. I’ve taught writing at the high school level (5+ years) and at the Worldcon Writers’ Workshop (2 years). I hold an MFA in poetry and was a communications and interactive media professor at the college and graduate level (5+ years). In-person and skype/hangout visits are both possible. If you are an educator or librarian, please get in touch via my contact page.
