Oregon, she has also published two scholarly monographs and a book-length
translation into English of poetic essays by Quebec poet Louise Warren. She

London, Brighton, and New York City. He holds an M.A. in Creative Writing
from Antioch University (London) and a Ph.D. in English from SUNY-Buffalo’s
Poetics Program. He currently lives in Eugene, Oregon, with his wife and
daughter, and teaches writing at Lane Community College.
About Airlie Press:
Run by writers, the press is dedicated to cultivating and sustaining fine
