Role at Red Bird: Publishing Intern

How I became involved with Red Bird and why I agreed to do it:
I heard about Red Bird through one of my college professors and was instantly interested in their work. So I applied, got the internship, and couldn’t wait to begin learning and contributing to the hard work that goes into Red Bird.

Recent Red Bird project(s):
I’m currently working on the abstracts for the chapbook Eighteen Poems to God and a Poem to Satan and the chapbook A Cabal Of Angels.

A little about my own work and what I am currently working on:
I have an unconditional love for poetry and I’ve published several pieces of my own through my college’s literary magazine The Fulcrum. However, I’m currently working on a fiction novel I hope to publish one day once school work doesn’t take up all my time.

My favorite thing(s) that can be found in the public domain:

The Outsiders is my favorite book and I never get tired of reading it, but when I’m too lazy to read I binge watch The Walking Dead and Supernatural.
