Here I am honored to be included in an anthology of essays -Writers on the Avant-garde and Accessibility edited by Lily Hoang and Joshua Marie Wilkinson, forthcoming from Night Boat Books. They asked me for an essay on why I write and I wrote them one.


Here 30 of my contemporaries and myself are to be in the SpuytenDuvil Press anthology of women writing contemporary experimental fiction.


Here Our Believer column is mentioned over at the Poetry Foundation. Thanks whoever did that.
