I’m a writer, editor, poet, and marcom pro with one of the shortest and easiest to spell commonly misspelled first names.

Atlanta, where I received a B.A. in creative writing and theater from Emory University, is my current locale; however, I have earned a master’s degree in integrated marketing communications from West Virginia University, I’ve lived in the DFW area of Texas, and I know Arkansas always will be “where the heart is.”

My most recently published poems (“And Suddenly Your Estimated Time of Arrival”; “Granny, Sharecropper – Arkansas, 1943”; “True or False”) appear in issue six of Enizagam. Other works appear in TORCH, Mythium, Aunt Chloe, a handful of stones, The New York Times, USA TODAY College, and elsewhere. When I am not submitting my own work, I read submissions for journals, including issue four of Generations.

In 2010, I interned for actress/singer Andrea Lewis and writer/TV personality/photographer Shannon Boodram. In 2008, I was named Strength of Nature/Profectiv’s first Miss Campus Fresh Face and subsequently appeared in JET, Hype Hair, and Black College Today magazines.
