How did you hear about Triangle Writers?


What kind of writing do you enjoy most?

That is a tricky question if it relates to genre. I write mostly literary nonfiction, but I read poetry and fiction often and for pleasure. I say "for pleasure" because I find, when I read nonfiction, that I'm reading it as a writer and typically put more effort into deconstructing it to see how the parts work. In general I like image-rich poetry and prose that relies heavily on scene and restraint

How often do you write?

That depends on how you define writing. Does thinking and planning count? It should.

Have you been published? Do you have a website?

My work has appeared in Alaska Quarterly Review, Permafrost, The Citron Review, BioStories, and F Magazine. I have work forthcoming in Vela, The Southampton Review, and Chautauqua. This year I was a finalist for The Fourth Genre’s Michael Steinberg Essay Prize and Ninth Letter’s Literary Award.

Have you been involved with critique groups before?



I just moved to Raleigh from Anchorage, Alaska and would like to meet local writers. I was hoping a critique group would help generate new post-MFA material.
