Forthcoming Book

Hello and welcome to my website! You may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything new since November 2017, and I have a pretty exciting excuse!

Since attending Naked Heart : An LGBTQ Festival of Words in the fall I have been focused on assembling and creating a larger collection of my work, and decided to start writing a manuscript for my debut book of poetry. Since November I have been working on this project and also writing for publications like Them, Canadian Art and Prism International. In December was accepted to The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and in January I raised $5000 (with the help of so many of you!!) to attend! I had two weeks at the end of January and beginning of February to work on this manuscript alongside some of the most incredible people and landscapes, I gained so much inspiration from the land. Since then I have been working with different events and festivals in the maritimes and Ontario, and I am excited to share this work with you whenever it is finished.
