This workshop will introduce methods used by contemporary writers for creative beginnings. We will write in response to short readings and prompts. This writing workshop will serve as a guide not only for journal writing, but also for developing your journal entries into essays, stories and/or poems.

She won the 2015 Kenyon Review Short Fiction Contest, judged by Ann Patchett, and the 2016 SmokeLong Quarterly Kathy Fish Fellowship. Her work has appeared in cream city review, Epiphany, Hobart, wigleaf, and elsewhere. She has an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College and lives in Singapore and Indianapolis.
