I’m currently the curator of Nourishing Resistance, a series of interviews on the intersections between food and political resistance hosted at Bone & All.

From April 2015 until November 2017 I was the founding editor of Tiny Donkey, a journal of short-form fairy-tale nonfiction associated with Fairy Tale Review.
