What books/authors have most influenced your writing?

The list of authors is substantive, but includes Langston Hughes, Jack Gilbert, Mark Cox, Richard Jackson, Robert Vivian, Nikky Finney, Natasha Tretheway, Honoreé Fanonne Jeffers and Etheridge Knight, among many others. Very early influences on my writing included Michael McClure's work as well as Alan Ginsburg's and the musical influences of other beat poets and folk and blues musicians.

What are your current writing projects?

I am currently submitting a collection of poems that was my graduate thesis as well as querying a novel. In 2016, I was nominated for a Pushcart Prize for my poem, "The Wet on Milan Street." Recent publications include Kindred Literary Magazine.
