Her poetry has appeared in The Harvard Review, The Mid-American Review, The Indiana Review, and other journals. She is a graduate of the writing programs at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is currently a Gaius Charles Bolin Fellow at Williams College. Her first book, But a Storm is Blowing From Paradise, won Red Hen Press’s 2010 Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award, judged by Claudia Rankine.
FLATSITTER engages old and new technologies to create electronic meditations that reimagine everyday experiences through color, light, and sound. The use of digital and analog processing methods contemplates technology as an extension of our sensory existence and synthetically captures a naïve sense of freedom within a heavily mediated world of signals.
Silo City Reading Series is curated by Noah Falck (JBLC Education Director)
