She lives in Wausau with the poet Travis Brown and their eight-year-old.

Workshop Overview:

Setting and background most often conjure stasis. We think of the painted scenery that lines the stage or the near-negative space of a painting. But how and why might a reconsideration of place–and an attempt to write place as specific, dynamic, and forceful–invigorate, recast, or create a new opening into a work of fiction? Writing our environments–both built and “natural”–has basis in an ecological approach to writing and art-making. It is also another way for writers–new or experienced–to come to the page.
