"We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives."
I am a published poet, contributing writer for ArtsATL, and contributing editor for Scalawag Magazine. My first chapbook Little Earthquakes, was the winner of the 2010 New York Book Festival Poetry Prize. I'm currently finishing a collection of essays on race, class, and the changing South. When I'm not writing about those topics, I can be found tweeting about politics, or blogging about bookish and/or UX things that inspire me.
