I am a writer and teacher.
I write literary criticism, reviews, essays, and the occasional feature or profile. My work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times, the New York Review of Books, and the Nation, among other publications.
The Equivalents, my first book, was published in May 2020. It's about a group of women artists and writers who came together at the Radcliffe Institute in the early 1960s. The book describes their creative lives and artistic collaborations and how these things shaped and were shaped by the women's liberation movement. You can read more here.
I am a visiting lecturer in creative writing at Harvard University; I have also taught at Tufts University, Emerson College, and the Harvard Extension School. In prior years, I taught courses in expository writing, history, and literature. I've taught students at all levels, from first-year undergraduates to master's students.
I graduated from Harvard's doctoral program in English in May of 2015.
