I’m a writer and educator. As a teaching artist with Morris Arts, I lead creative writing workshops in school-based residencies in northern New Jersey. My workshops explore memoir and poetry and culminate in a printed anthology or reading of student work. Since 2011, I have led residencies at public elementary and middle schools in Madison, Harding, Millburn, Short Hills, Wharton, and other cities and towns.
I lead workshops in memoir, poetry, and mindful writing for youth and adults and run creative writing events in public settings, including past events at the Giralda Music & Arts Festival and Meet Me in Morristown.
I received my master's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Rutgers University-Newark.
I write the newsletter Swan. My nonfiction and fiction appear in the anthologies About Face: Women Write About What They See When They Look in the Mirror and The Long Meanwhile: Stories of Arrival and Departure. Stories and interviews have also appeared in Bitch magazine, including Oh Yoko!: 20 Years of Looking at an Art-World Icon.
