editorial & design work

in-between things

everything else

As Managing Editor at Litmus Press (Nov 2019 - present), I collaborate on the editing, production, and promotion of around 6 titles per year, in addition to new editions and reprints from historical presses O Books and The Post-Apollo Press, whose catalogs we manage. 

As former Project Manager at Belladonna* Collaborative (2017-2019), I was an editor on collaborative book teams for Samuel Ace’s Meet Me There, Lyn Hejinian’s Positions of the Sun, and Pamela Sneed’s Sweet Dreams.

I also work as a freelance editor— most recently on Johanna Skibsrud’s The Nothing That Is: Essays on Art, Literature and Being (Book*hug, 2019) and on Other Influences, edited by Jennifer Firestone and Marcella Durand for MIT Press (forthcoming 2023). 

Other editorial work includes that done for my micropress, Most Perfect World, and for the Organism for Poetic Research. For the OPR, I edited Moina Pam Dick’s Moira of Edges, the collaborative project Executive Orders, chapbooks such as Jake Kennedy’s Made Line Sing, Lisa Robertson’s Thinking Space, Asiya Wadud’s A Well-Built Lean-To, and volumes 1-3 of the magazine Pelt. I also had the pleasure of co-editing Robert Duncan’s Charles Olson Memorial Lecture as a volume for the CUNY Lost & Found series II.
