Buffer Zone: Snapshots from an Abortion Clinic Escort
Very excited to announce that my chapbook on my experience as an abortion clinic escort was picked up by Vegetarian Alcoholic Press and will be published in September 2020. As you can imagine, this book is incredibly personal and important to me. I became a clinic escort in 2016 after learning about even more attacks on and attempts to defund Planned Parenthood. I didn't intend to write an entire collection of poems about being an escort, but once the first one was complete, I couldn't stop and obsessively drafted all the poems in the collection. Looking forward to holding this baby in print.
