Happy Halloween!

So happy to have my short essay up at the So To Speak blog just in time for HALLOWEEN! In it I discuss the intersection between feminism, horror, and poetry, as well as a couple of my favorite monster women: “Women who give into their darker impulses when pushed too far. There’s a primal power there, a transformation that seeks to vindicate the mass grave of all those sexually active camp counselors. A woman that is at times grotesque and animal. Neither nerd nor pretty girl. Monster.”
