Thank you to the generous editors of Michigan Quarterly Review, who worked with me and published my latest essay "Elegy for Fox Island" in their Spring 2012 issue, Emerging Voices. It's about spending my sixteenth birthday getting rescued from a 12-foot sailboat, mud wrestling, and falling in love with a tiny island in Tangier Sound, off the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. It begins:
"I grew up in a land divided by endless rivers and streams. We were always crossing bridges."
You can order their print Spring 2021 issue online to read my essay, check out wonderful writing by other authors, and see the beautiful artwork included in the journal.
