How to Know the Flowers


I’m thrilled to announce that my recent manuscript, How to Know the Flowers, was accepted for publication by Veliz Books.

I wrote How to Know the Flowers in the spring of 2017. It’s about sexual harassment, grief, and repairing oneself through art (in this case, natural dyeing) and female friendship. It was a finalist for publication in the 2017 Sundress Publications and Nightboat Books reading periods.

Veliz Books publishes books written and translated into English, Spanish, and Portuguese and both emerging and established authors. I’m excited to work with them because they are publishing experimental work that crosses geographical borders.
