"I am a Jones Lecturer in the Creative Writing Program at Stanford, and a former Wallace Stegner Fellow. I am the author of Double Portrait (W.W. Norton, 2017), which was selected by Claudia Rankine for the Barnard Women Poets Prize; The Curiosities (Free Verse Editions, 2012); and, with Kim Addonizio, The Night Could Go in Either Direction (SHP, 2016), a collaborative chapbook that combines prose poems and pen-and-ink drawings. In my work I am interested in recurrence, refrain, and musicality; I am also interested in formally experimental, cross-genre, and hybrid writing. My poems and essays have received the Elizabeth Matchett Stover Memorial Award from Southwest Review; and awards and fellowships from the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity, the Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fund, and the James Merrill House Foundation. Before coming to Stanford in 2009, I taught literature and creative writing at James Madison University. I live in San Francisco."
