Role at Red Bird: Poetry Editor

I first became involved with Red Bird as an intern in the fall of 2016. I was looking for ways to get more involved with the literary community and had always heard wonderful things about Red Bird. I really enjoyed the experience, so when I learned there may be editor openings, I was very quick to apply.

A little about my own work and what I am currently working on:
I write mostly Poetry and CNF. I’m very interested in the way sound can influence our work and I do a lot of experimenting with the ways in which we can bend and blend genres. I have a synthesizer called the OP-1 that I really enjoy incorporating into live readings. I think it adds a new layer to a piece and gives it something unique.
