new reviews of field guide to autobiography

for so long, i doubted my first book would be published – sending work out, bracing myself for the inevitable rejections, polishing the manuscript, sending it back out into the world. doing that thing many poets do where you just keep plugging away, despite the sense of defeat that nips at you, the voice that whispers mean nagging things. that voice needs to die. we are all of us worth it. if you believe in your work, eventually someone else will too. let this be a reminder to keep going.

i’m thrilled that two fellow poets took the time to write such insightful reviews about my first full-length collection, & am so grateful to Jennifer Martelli and Rob McLennan for reading the work with such precision and care.
