Hello, all! The YouTube version of the 2nd episode of my podcast is now live! Here it is:
Hey, everyone! I have a new podcast episode up and running! You can find it here:
Relocated spouse, child.
New field person.
Here I am, reading at Rogue Fest 2022 on March 5th at Goldstein’s in Fresno. This was part of #FresnoWritersLive with the support of the Fresno State Creative Writing MFA program and CWAA. I read with three amazing poets, Aidan, Shelby, and Ceci, who are my fellow CWAA members. This video is of my portion of the reading. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, and to my familia who made it out to see me!
I recently had the absolute pleasure and honor to be a reader at Lit Hop Fresno 2021! The theme for my group was “Writing The Domestic” or “Women’s Work.” I composed 3 poems, specifically for the event, and read an oldie but a goodie from Moon Ride (“It’s A Girl”). Thinking about the theme of domesticity and the tediousness of women’s work naturally led to me writing a poem about an android woman refusing to do work. Here is the visual representation of that poem!
I also want to let you know that I have a new area on my page where I list all of my previous publications. It’s under “Work.” (You can click that right there!)
One last thing! A reminder to follow me on my socials, if you please:
Thank you for reading!
Hey, everyone! Long time no-see. Why have I been gone? This last week was finals week, and I am officially done with my first year of my MFA! Woohoo! I have been celebrating by staying up late listening to music and writing. I was particularly inspired by a Madonna song, “Bedtime Story” and decided to create a redacted poem from it. Here it is:
Thanks for stopping by.
(Grad school). I remain imperfect. But the grueling behind clear eyes
feels like a portal to joy.
I began with my vision
But, the further
I dive into the forest,
the more the canopy
On my olive skin.
To look down
at my hands
is to look through a kaleidoscope
If the virus created
@ least I could shine
