I am honored to report that my poem, Passing Among Strangers, which I wrote while working a lab technician in Iowa, is shortlisted for the 2021 Hippocrates Prize in the Health Professional category. Winners will be announced by webcast on May 19th. Please see the press release below for additional details:
My education includes an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, a BS and BA from Winthrop University, and coursework at UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University Continuing Studies. I have taken visual art classes and workshops through the Arts Council of York County and the Art Students League in New York. I have held numerous jobs to support my studies, including working as a long-haul trucker, a lab technician, a barista, and a kayak guide. I maintain a studio in Rock Hill, SC.
My poem “Error” appeared in The Examined Life Journal and my poem “Capsize” was published in The Cotton Alley Writers Review as an honorable mention. My poem “Passing Among Strangers” is forthcoming in the 2021 Hippocrates Awards Anthology. My fiction has appeared in Ploughshares and my nonfiction in SIC : a Journal of Literature, Culture, and Literary Translation. I am at work on finding a home for my poetry chapbook, and on completing a novel and a nonfiction book.
This summer I will be selling visual art in the Ag and Art tour.
