Hi, I’m KL.
I write primarily within the genres of essay, lyric essay, and poetry. Topically, I wade into the waters of queerness, memory, and identity. I believe that writing can be funny, sad, bewildering, shocking, soothing, and true all at once. As a hobby, I make little (literally small) drawings and paintings.
I’ve taught poetry, fiction, and expository writing. Check out details for past courses.
I believe service is important. As such, I collaborate with NAMI as a public speaker and advocate for the de-stigmatization of mental illness.
Originally from Texas (hook ’em ) I now reside in Washington, DC.
