Recent Writing

I had some writing published around the web (and one in print!) in the last few months:

I reviewed Hanif Abdurraqib’s A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance for The Athenaeum Review. It appeared in their print issue and online here.

I reviewed Clint Smith’s How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America for Porter House Review. It’s available online here.

Spoiler: both books were incredible.

I wrote about mental health and quitting my job last year for Lunch Ticket. Last semester, I served as the blog editor for the journal. We published ten blogs that I’m really proud of. I have incredible peers.

Finally, I wrote about my love of Kermit as a cowboy and reimagining Western masculinity in The Muppet Movie for Lunch Ticket‘s new series, Midnight Snack.

You are a gifted writer and I’m so proud of you for following your heart, for doing what you have to/want to for yourself. Thank you for sharing your gift.

Thank you so much, Mrs. Yokeley. It’s great to hear from you. I’m now working as a curriculum specialist writing high school ELA content. It’s because of teachers like you that I’m still using my passion for education.
