I’m an aunt, a dog mom, an anarchist following in my mother’s footsteps, and a writer.
I live in St. Louis. Our summers boast the kind of humidity that’s good for fostering irises and spider ferns and discussions about the merits of dry heat versus wet heat (those discussions have a disturbing lack of innuendo-awareness; perhaps that, too, is a regional failing).
2020 is my first Poetry Marathon. I usually write poetry for purely personal reasons–generally just working through my own thoughts. For work, I have a long-term memoir project, but primarily write about hockey (the Washington Capitals!) for the sports site Russian Machine Never Breaks. I’m also a freelance editor (specializing in academia and short fiction, with additional experience in indexing, and perhaps too obvious a hankering for additional clients…).
I have a dog. He’s much cuter than I am. (He’s also a grumpy old man, but I’m much grumpier than he is.) I’m fairly active on Twitter if you’d like to get to know more about me there.
Otherwise: I hope I finish out the rest of this half-marathon, and shall now stop procrastinating and get to writing!
