Her poetry has been published in the print anthologies, Cactus Heart, Askew Poetry, Bank Heavy Press and Spilled Ink as well in a number of online journals including Poetry International, The Adirondack Review, The Daily O, Lantern Journal, Convergence Journal, AAJ, Zabaan, AntiSerious and Full Of Crow.
