What are you working on?
I am working on a full-length manuscript focused on the life of Annie Oakley. Poems I’ve written so far explore the nature of gun worship in America, how guns shaped America, along with America’s deeply embedded patriarchal values—what we expect from our female superstars. I’ve really gone all in with my research of her. I have read pretty much every book with her in it, I’ve visited her museum and her grave, and I even attended the Annie Oakley festival!
