SHORT FICTION

For my short fiction, I have received three Hopwood Awards, a Cornelia Carhart Ward Fellowship, and was selected as a finalist for the Philip Roth Residence in Creative Writing, the Wisconsin Institute of Creative Writing Fellowships, and the 2019 American Literary Review Fiction Contest. My short story “The Lamentations” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize and the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers.

I am currently at work on a novel, Brides, which draws on my professional experience in the bridal industry and my personal experience as a married queer woman to explore the tensions and contradictions within ‘gay marriage.’ Brides was named First Runner-Up in the 2020 James Jones First Novel Fellowship.
