She’s also the author of four chapbooks of poetry—How to Recognize a Lady  (part of Edge by Edge, Toadlily Press); The Mariner’s Wife, (Finishing Line Press); The Sad Epistles (Dancing Girl Press); This Is Our Hollywood (in The Chapbook)—and one nonfiction chapbook, Geography V, forthcoming from Winged City Press. Her work has appeared in such journals as The Rumpus, Harpur Palate, Prairie Schooner, Conduit, the Indiana Review, the Greensboro Review, Redivider, Verse, Feminist Studies, The Journal,
Guernica, and Copper Nickel.

Curatorial note: The following poems are a response to a call for poetry about rape culture for the annual Delirious Advent Feature; the call is in turn an immediate response to the Rolling Stone story “A Rape on Campus” about rape culture at the University of Virginia. However, they are also part of a larger conversation about rape in poetry communities. Curated by Jessica Smith and Susana Gardner.
