Writing

new year resol post (4 of 17)

My work has appeared in The American Poetry Review, Rattle (Poets Respond), The Offing, Public PoolOrigins, The Heavy Feather Review and LIGO Magazine. I was selected as a Spring 2016 AWP Writer to Writer mentee and have attended workshops at Bread Loaf, Sewanee and Tin House. I have a background in Linguistics (MA from UCLA, BA from the University of Queensland) and I have taught at UCLA and the Montclair State University. Starting in 2017, I will serve as staff at the Sewanee Writer’s Conference.

I am currently working on a collection of poems centered on identity in motherhood and immigration, as well as a novel set in Brasilia, where I grew up as the daughter of migrants from Northeast Brazil.
