writing + storytelling
I never set out to be a writer. But some stories nag, want to be listened to and wrestled with. I started writing for my son, wishing to leave some trace for him and fill the absence of other forms of family storytelling. The attempts took many forms over the years. I have experimented with journaling, memoir, auto-ethnography, and creative non-fiction, finding genre-bending formats to suit me best.
I am honored to be a part of the Women's National Book Association as an Authentic Voices Fellow in 2022, and to be published in their forthcoming anthology in 2023. And I look forward to more writing, creative collaborations, embodied listening, and intentional trace leaving, whether for my own stories, or witnessing and assisting with yours.
