I’m a Minneapolis-based writer of poems and lyric essays. I also teach creative writing classes for kids and adults, help writers reach their goals, and serve creative businesses, educators, and non-profits as a freelance writer and editorcarolyn-photo

My chapbook of poems, Small Like a Tooth, is available from Dancing Girl Press.

The latest: My essay in Willow Springs made the “notables” list in The Best American Essays 2018. And Sweet: A Literary Confection, nominated my poem, My Daughter and Her Best Friend Made Blue Jay Masks at Camp, for Best of the Net.

Coming up: The next Crab Orchard Review, entitled “Ka-Ching!: The Money Issue,” including a poem of mine, will be out this fall.
