Pushcart Prize Nomination

I am honored to announce that my short fiction has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize by one of the Prize’s Contributing Editors. 

No one story was nominated. Instead, I will be submitting one to three stories of my choice that I had published by small presses in 2016.


Winner of the Aleida Rodriguez Memorial Award

The Aleida Rodriguez Memorial Award recognizes promising graduate student writers at Arizona State University for their work and provides financial support toward pursuing a career in creative writing.

The Award recognized fiction writers this year (it will recognize poets next year) and was originally established in honor of Aleida Rodriguez, who passed away in 2012.

I am honored and delighted to be recognized as a promising student writer of fiction and look forward to thanking the donors who made this possible in person in the spring.
