“Looking too hard at the smallest parts of a too-big picture is sometimes not the most productive way to spend time.”


Parkersburg, West Virginia, United States of America

Professional title:

Freelance writer + office admin

What do you do?

I write place-based poetry for fun and business handbooks for money.


I write the things I do because the way identity is formed in large part by the places we live is important and learning to acknowledge that makes our communities stronger than they would be otherwise.

What should we read?

Pew by Catherine Lacey, followed immediately by Ursula K. LeGuin's "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas."
