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 will receive a master’s degree in integrated marketing communications from West Virginia University in August 2019, I’ve lived in the DFW area of Texas, and Arkansas will always 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.
