I am an American poet/writer whose work has been published in Europe (Acumen, here/there, the Journal, Lotus Eater, the North, Staple, Vine Leaves) and the U.S. (ARDOR, Blast Furnace, Flyover Country Review, Leopard Seal, Mezzo Cammin, Philosophy After Dark).
My short story, "Doppler Effect," (under pen name Hana Mystras) was a finalist for the 2014 Eric Hoffer Award and is included in Best New Writing 2014. "Burning Fallow Fields," won Honorable Mention in the 2014 Robert Frost Foundation poetry contest.
I was a featured poet for Tupelo Press' 30/30 poetry-writing marathon (Nov. 2013), and my poetry is included in Best of Vine Leaves 2013 and Best of Tupelo Press' 30/30 (pub. late 2014).
