My new book, Far Company, is out from Wayne State University Press. My book of poems informed by Great Lakes shipwrecks, Harborless, (Wayne State University Press), is a 2018 Michigan Notable Book and the winner of the 2017 Moveen Prize in Poetry. I also have two chapbooks. Apple Season won the Midwest Writing Center's 2012 Chapbook Contest, judged by Shane McCrae. The Sultan, The Skater, The Bicycle Maker won The Ledge Press 2011 Poetry Chapbook Award. My poetry has appeared in a variety of journals, including Tin House Online, Passages North, Salamander, Sugar House Review, and West Branch. For several years, I was a regular contributor for Murder Ballad Monday, a blog devoted to the exploration of the murder ballad tradition in folk and popular music. I am a co-founder of Filmetry: A Festival of Film and Poetry. My artist’s books are held in private collections and in Murray & Hong Special Collections at Michigan State University Libraries, the Zhang Legacy Collections Center at Western Michigan University, and the Rolvaag Library Special Collections at St. Olaf College.
