A writer from Omaha, I also teach writing at Creighton University, co-direct Omaha Lit Fest, and help run Dundee Book Company.
A 2020 National Endowment for the Arts creative writing fellow, I’ve been awarded scholarships from Wesleyan Writers Conference, Key West Literary Seminar (as winner of the Marianne Russo Award), Disquiet International Literary Program, Port Townsend Writers Conference, and earned an MFA in Creative Writing as a fellow at Creighton University. In the summer of 2014, I was a fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany, where I lived on the grounds of a 248 year-old Baroque palace.
I’m represented by Stephanie Delman of Trellis Literary Management.
