This page is now a gateway to separate subpages with my projects.

Birdverse: an intricate, multicultural, queer secondary world named after its goddess, Bird. Working in Birdverse has been my main focus for a while.


The Jewish magic realist project: not everything in it is Jewish, or magic realist, but the collection revolves around the themes of immigration, loss, family, languages, and pain. It contains both short stories and poems.


The Boundless Universe: my SFnal universe. I’ll create a page for this shortly.


The Journeymaker Cycle: contains poems about the three main characters of Two-Mountain World: the Journeymaker, her brother the Wind Hoarder, and Keddar. Loosely connected to the Cycle are the Land Poem series (also on that page).


Editorial projects:

* I have founded and am currently co-editing Stone Telling magazine with Shweta Narayan. We publish boundary-crossing, diverse speculative poetry with a strong emotional core.

* As a part of Stone Telling, I have edited and published Here, We Cross, a collection of queer and genderfluid poetry from Stone Telling 1-7.

* I have also edited The Moment of Change, a critically acclaimed anthology of speculative feminist poetry that has come out of Aqueduct Press in 2012.

* I am currently editing an anthology of very short surrealist works titled An Alphabet of Embers.
