Thatâ€™s right! My collaborative chapbook written with the amazing Lauren Madeline Wiseman has placed third in the Elgin Awards. We are so phenomenally honored to be included among such amazing works of poetry.
And Iâ€™m so stoked that Iâ€™m hosting aÂ poetry giveaway on my Instagram â€” featuring copies of the two winners and a copy of my collaborative chapbook.
