The Rumpus, Feministing, and Courage Anthology!

Posted by on May 02 2014, in publications


Greetings from Madison, at the tail end of the Midwest portion of my book tour! It’s been an awesome few weeks in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Madison. I had a blast at Arcadia Books in Spring Green, WI last night and am stoked to feature at First Wave’s Just Bust Open Mic tonight!

Some updates:

The Rumpus: I had an essay published in The Rumpus, as part of their recurring “Where I Write” segment, which features writers talking about their creative processes. I drew a slightly-janky illustration to accompany my piece. Read the essay, “The Wild Pendulum,” here!

Feministing: My poem, “To the Man Who Shouted, ‘I Like Pork Fried Rice’ at Me on the Street,” was featured on Feministing a little while back. This blog makes me filled with productive feminist rage (i.e., happy), and I’m honored that my work was highlighted.

The Courage Anthology: This beautiful poetry anthology for teenage girls, edited by Karen Finneyfrock, Rachel McKibbens, and Mindy Netifee, just dropped yesterday! I have two poems included in the collection. The Courage Anthology: Daring Poems for Gutsy Girls also includes work by Patricia Smith, Sarah Kay, Fatimah Asghar, Jamila Woods, Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Aracelis Girmay, Andrea Gibson, Sonya Renee Taylor, and so many more amazing female-bodied poets.
