Hey there!

My name is Bridget and I am a 5’6 freckled beanpole, born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. I am currently studying to get my B.A. in English at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. After I finish my undergraduate degree I hope to get my Ph.D. in literature, travel as much of the world as I can, and finally settle down in an off-the-grid tiny house with a field of wildflowers for a lawn.

My central interest is contemporary poetry— I have this theory that poetry is the best media format for giving people a voice in the world today. I’m also very interested the post-postmodernism debate and the interaction between contemporary poetry and translation studies. I write my own poetry but so far have been too much of a wimp to submit anywhere. My work can be found at my Poetry in Progress blog. My favorite poetry anthologies I own are The Poetry of Our World: An International Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, Haikus in English: The First Hundred Years, and I Love Roses When They’re Past Their Best. At present, my favorite novel is Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.

When not writing or reading, I love to absorb media in other formats, including cinema, animation, theatre, visual art, and video games. I also like to travel to new places, roll around in the outdoors, take deep and fulfilling naps, and pet every cat I see.

I am delighted to join Sundress as an editorial intern so I can not only give my best effort to an incredible organization but also grow and learn as part of this community.
