I’m thrilled and honored to have edited this gorgeous collection of body essays!

Here’s what others have to say about Awakenings: Stories of Body & Consciousness:


“Awakenings is a celebration of the body, the whole body. These essays astonish with tales of teeth, arms, hips, gallbladders, lungs, toes and hair. And hearts, too … More than anything, this collection celebrates voices. Awakenings is a spectacular revolutionary chorus.”

―Ana Maria Spagna, author of Uplake: Restless Essays of Coming and Going and Pushed: Miners, a Merchant, and (Maybe) a Massacre


“In Awakenings, forty-nine writers bear brilliant witness to the perils and promise of the human organism ... Journeying through this book, you will feel yourself intrigued and awakened. These writers show us how we can empower our own embodiment.”

―David Groff, author of Live in Suspense


“Awakenings … is an offering, a chorus of voices carefully orchestrated, singing and howling, sometimes in harmony, other moments in acapella or hushed string ensemble. No matter, you’ll stay for the entire concert and find yourself forever altered after.“

–Rebecca Evans, author of Tangled by Blood, a memoir in verse

I am thrilled and honored to have edited Awakenings: Stories of Body & Consciousness (ELJ Editions)! I LOVE every gorgeous, courageous piece in this anthology!
