Her poems appear in numerous journals and anthologies and she’s the author of Write Moves: A Creative Writing Guide. She teaches at Western Washington University.

With Fred Wah, she is the editor of a poetics anthology, Toward. Some. Air. (Banff Centre Press 2015). Her criticism has appeared in Women: A Cultural Review, Anguish Language (Archive Books 2015), The Oxford Companion to Modern Poetry (OUP 2013), Cambridge Literary Review, and Metamute.
