I always prefer to hand-write my poems before typing them.

The works below are published in varying editions of From the Writers’ Kitchen, the University of Findlay’s undergraduate literary journal. This magazine is a print-only magazine; however, it is in the process of becoming digitized. A digital copy of the 2018 version of From the Writers’ Kitchen is now available. “Untitled” won first place in the G.G. Bruer Poetry Prize in 2017, “Goodbye” won second place in the G.G. Bruer Prize in 2018, and another poem won third place in the G.G. Bruer Prize in the 2018-2019 edition.

Big, Beautiful Distraction

My First Kiss

In a Perfect World




Really, It’s Okay

Waiting Without Reason
