She is also the recipient of the 2007 Margery Davis Boyden Wilderness Writing Residency which will provide her with a year of solitude in Oregon’s Rogue River Valley. She will use her time there to complete work on her manuscript, Beautiful in the Mouth, which contains poems currently published or forthcoming in Prairie Schooner, West Branch, Parthenon West Review, and Painted Bride Quarterly, among others. This poem previously appeared in the Spring 2006 issue of Faultline.
