"I was initially drawn to the creative writing master's program at EMU because of the radical experimental work being sponsored in the classes and syllabi, and because of the faculty members, many of whom are poets whose work I'd studied and loved prior to moving to Michigan. My experience in the Creative Writing program was complex, engaging, and challenging. The politics of the poem, the classroom, and the university were taken seriously in the courses I took, and the stakes of our writing, our workshopping, and the relations embedded in these activities were actively discussed and contested. Through my time in the CW program, many incredibly meaningful relationships and opportunities arose, such as co-facilitating a poetry workshop at Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility, presenting my own work at the Communal Presence Conference in Berkeley, CA, and corresponding with and publishing many of my favorite authors through my editorship at BathHouse journal. My writing practice and writing community has significantly deepened during my time at EMU, and I'm grateful to have traces of conversations with my peers and professors - both inside and outside the classroom - woven through my work."
