I'm a poet, letterpress printmaker, editor & teacher.
My chapbook Dream of a Perfect Interface is available through Dancing Girl Press. My poems have appeared in DIAGRAM, Handsome Journal, Interim Magazine, Konundrum Engine Literary Review, Paper Darts, Taurpaulin Sky Literary Journal, and The Offending Adam, among other places. In collaboration with my husband, tattoo artist and illustrator Shawn Hebrank, I make letterpress broadsides, mail art, and artist books under the name Four-Letter Press. I hold an MFA in creative writing from University of Minnesota and a core certificate in book arts from Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
After teaching composition, literature and creative writing to college students for several years, I now work as a freelance editor and writing coach. I like interacting one-on-one with clients and helping their writing projects take shape, get polished, and thrive. My services page has more information.
