Her work appears widely in journals and anthologies (most recently, The Account, The Black Scholar, Jacket2, Waxwing, and Obsession: Sestinas in the Twenty-First Century) and her honors include the 2012 Holmes National Poetry Prize, fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, and residencies at Hedgebrook, MacDowell, and the Millay Colony for the Arts.
