Manuscript Selected as Contest Winner

I'm over the moon that my manuscript Wider than the Sky was one of the manuscripts selected by Diode Editions in their annual contest! An excerpt from it was selected as the winner of the 2019 Poetry Society of America Robert H. Winner Award. The manuscript’s title is from Emily Dickinson’s poem “The Brain—is wider than the Sky—For—put them side by side.” The manuscript itself explores memory and its role in identity, how the physiology of the brain impacts who we are, the role of the senses in the formation of memories, how the human brain is wired for story, and how who we are—both individually and as a society—is, in one sense, a narrative.

It's an honor to be part of the Diode Editions family. Congratulations to the other winners! You can read the entire announcement here:
