I am a poet and lyrical essay writer. My writing practice serves to unearth what is difficult to say out loud or to know for certain. I do so to illuminate the dark and solitary corners in which grief manifests itself, to juxtapose its intimate expressions with how it is performed and ritualized in public life.
You can find my poetry and lyrical essays in literary journals like Canadian Women’s Studies, Open Minds Quarterly and POEISIS.
I teach a creative writing course called Process that helps writers develop gentle ways of forming routine and discipline with their practice.
Below you will find links to my poetry and collage projects as well as my academic essays on grief, memory and difficult histories (Mad Studies, Sound Studies, Memory Studies).
