My essay “After Your Great-Grandmother Tita” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Exposition Review. The Pushcart is a prestigious literary award and I’m honored to be a amongst the 200K or so who have been nominated. Winners will be announced in the spring. While it’d be amazing to receive this recognition, what really matters — as I’ve heard multiple writers say over and over — is that I keep writing!

I’m Reading This Wed. at the NoHo Lit Crawl. Come on Out!


I’ll be reading on the panel entitled, “The Rejection Game,” with the writer’s group Women Who Submit. “Rejection is par for the course if you’re trying to get published. This reading will celebrate work that has been rejected time and again, but that we still believe in. Featuring: Stephanie Abraham, Tammy De La Torre, Ryane Nicole Granados, Siel Ju, Jac- queline Kate Maruyama, Rachael Warecki, hosted by Lauren Eggert-Crowe.”
