I am interested in where lyric and narrative intersect, in working with the strengths in each of these forms. I am interested in white space and line breaks, in the way silence creates room in which words collide and ricochet. I am interested in the kind of tension that can be made visually and linguistically with letters placed on the page. And I am interested in sound, in how the repetition of sounds creates density and intensity within lines, stanzas, and entire poems. I teach in the Arkansas Writer's MFA Program and for the Department of Writing at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR. I co-edit the online poetry journal Heron Tree, and blog at Myself the only Kangaroo among the Beauty.
