It’s been a big semester for me so far, and there are many others fun surprises around the corner. But for now… It’s giveaway time! To celebrate the upcoming publication of my poetry book, one lucky winner will receive all of the amazing goodies pictured, plus a signed copy of Troubles!

Please note that this giveaway is in no way associated with, administered by, or sponsored by Instagram. In addition, the giveaway package will not be shipped until the books are printed. Open to continental US residents only (I can’t pay international shipping—sorry!).
The giveaway ends April 3, 2021, and entries accepted until 10:00 AM Eastern Time. The drawing will take place on April 3, 2021 between 11am and 2pm. The winner will be notified via DM and announced on my Instagram story, but must respond within 48 hours of notification, or they forfeit the prize and an alternate winner will be selected. There is no entry fee, registration fee, or purchase required. Shipping costs for the prize will be paid by me.
I’m thrilled to also announce that Troubles will be available for purchase in a brick-and-mortar store: Kathleen’s of Donegal in Rockville Center, New York! I’ve been going to Kathleen’s with my dad ever since I was a little kid, so it feels extra-special to know that my book has found a home there!
In addition, more exciting news: My poem, “God Spoke to Me Through the Car Stereo” has been selected for the Spring 2021 issue of The Bryant Literary Review! I’m honored to be included in this magazine, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
Finally, a reminder: On March 26, 2021, I’ll be taking over For the Punks’ Instagram page! I’m excited to have the opportunity to do a Q&A, some poetry readings, and more! Come prepared with questions about my work as a music reviewer, Troubles, or anything else you’d be interested in learning more about! I’d love to see some familiar faces!
Thank you so much for your support so far! I can’t wait to share some more exciting news very soon! 🙂
