I’m a writer of poems, lyric essays, and other slow things. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. carolyn-photo

My poem, “At 3 a.m. the Night I Heard You Died” is in AGNI 85.

My lyric essay looking back at a rough time and the oldest tree in the city is featured on the Willow Springs site.

And you can still get my chapbook—Small Like a Tooth.

I’ve been grateful for the support of a 2010-2011 Loft Mentor Series award; a 2010 Blacklock Nature Sanctuary fellowship; a 2014 McKnight Artist Fellowship; and Artist Initiative Grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board in 2013 and 2016.
