Woodbridge, CT – “For a number of years I’ve juggled work, family, and writing. Most of my time goes to work and children, hence the proposal. I’d like to tip the scales, even if only slightly. My academic training is in modern European history and philosophy, though my interest is in literature, and for several years now I’ve been working as an archivist, responsible for literary archives and material, at the Beinecke Library at Yale. I’ve published short fiction and poetry, most recently with Phylum Press (2007).
     I’ve been aware of the Millay Colony for years, possibly from colleagues who have applied for residencies in the past. I was encouraged to apply this year by my wife, poet Katie Yates.”
