Standard Magazine “Summer Abroad” Guest Editorship

I was lucky enough to be asked by the original eco-designer, Kelly LaPlante, if I would guest edit the “On the Boards” section of Standard magazine’s “Summer Abroad” Issue.

“Practical Sublimities”: My Thesis for Columbia University’s MFA in Nonfiction Writing

Today I handed in my thesis! Needless to say I’m exhausted, but happy, and very, very proud. It came it at just over 34,000 words, and is a combination of memoir, science writing, essay and the chapter of the book project I’ve been working on, called Sense(Less).

And now I just wait until my thesis meeting in a few short weeks, and hopefully, graduation in October! (In celebration, I wore the same skirt that I wore to my first day of classes, it’s a full-length beauty of a skirt from Anthropologie that I’ll have forever!)
