Welcome!

I built this virtual classroom during the pandemic. It’s now April 2024 and some things in the world have changed and some things have stayed the same. What isn’t different is the author, poet, dreamer, artist, and wanderer–the remarkable undergrads who pass through my classroom. Now, in its next iteration, this is a library of writing and publishing resources for you–and, dear traveler, I’m glad you’re here!


Letter from the past, time capsule, words I want to remember from March 2021:

This is still (one year later!) a site for writers and students and all of us at home, or slowly venturing out, deep in our tech, distancing and Netflixing, and catching up on news that’s endlessly breaking. For those still fretting and those relaxing and snacking and feeling great then stir crazy, this site is for you—a small space for making do in a world that’s slowly rising from hibernation. As a teacher and a poet, I originally wanted a space for my students to reflect on the world spinning on its axis while we each come to stop—our sports, our classes, our dorms, our dates, our senior year, our study abroad, our graduation, our regular routines, and the list goes on. I made this site because I didn’t want our semester to be business as usual in a time that’s proving to be new. Now that we are getting back to the things we love and missing who and what we’ve also lost, I welcome you back.
