My research interests include contemporary poetry and poetics, the literary essay, and representations of loss and consolation in children’s literature. I am also very interested in creative writing pedagogies. I am the author of the poetry collection One Crow Sorrow (Brindle & Glass, 2008) and co-editor of How to Expect What You’re Not Expecting: Stories of Pregnancy, Parenthood, and Loss (Touchwood Editions, 2013). A second full-length collection of poetry, Believing is not the same as Being Saved, is forthcoming with University of Alberta Press in Spring 2017.
