I was the Editor-in-Chief of the literary journal fugue for issues 53,54, and 55, and Marketing Editor/designer for issues 51 and 52. The last issue I worked on—number 55—contains 4 lost poems and an essay by Anne Sexton. It also has new poems by some of my favorite working writers: Andrew Grace, Campbell McGrath, Maggie Queeney, Zachary Schomburg (who also did the amazing cover art). During my time with fugue, I was lucky enough to work with and publish a few of my poetic heroes, including Matthew Dickman (2 poems and an interview), Meg Freitag (2 poems), and Nance Van Winckel (3 "photoems"). It was such a blast and wealth of education working for this magazine.
The brainchild of poet and digital librarian Devin Becker, CTRL-Shift is an online collection of audio recordings, transcripts, process visualizations, and data analyses broken out from interviews conducted with 11 prominent contemporary American poets from across the United States.
The project examines recent changes in writing practices that occurred due to the advent of the computer and the arrival of the digital age and investigates new modes of working with and publishing data from qualitative interview studies.
The poets interviewed include: Rae Armantrout, Bruce Beasley, Amy Gerstler, Louise Glück, James McMichael, K. Silem Mohammad, Robert Pinsky, Michael Ryan, Stephanie Strickland, Nance Van Winckel, and Robert Wrigley.
Poet and essayist Lauren Westerfield and I assisted with design, data clean up/organization/analysis, and copy writing, and I illustrated the black and white portraits of the poets and process icons throughout the site.

Vandal Poem of the Day (VPOD) is a public poetry project, which brings relevant contemporary poetry to the University of Idaho and the broader Idaho community. A new poem is published on this website every day during the academic year. Each can be accessed via the use of QR codes, which can be scanned on mobile phones using free QR readers (iTunes QR Reader | Google Play QR Reader), that will be placed around Moscow, Northern Idaho, and the University of Idaho campus.
The first featured press (2015-16 academic year) was Copper Canyon Press, followed by BOA Editions, Ltd. (2016-17), and Persea Books (2017-18). For the 2018-19 academic year, VPOD is excited to feature poetry from the back catalog of Poetry Northwest magazine.
