New York, NY
Sandee is a New York born and raised writer, poet, editor, teacher, and globetrotter. She is a Phi Betta Kappa, Isaacs, and Kaye Scholar who received her BA in English Literature from The City College of New York, while graduating Summa Cum Laude with the Charles G. Habermann Memorial Award in Latin. She is currently embarking upon her MA in Literary Linguistics through the University of Nottingham. Her poetry can be found printed in Phoenix, Promethean, Sonder Quarterly, and Beechwood Review—among other online publications. Her forthcoming chapbook, devis(h)er, will be released by dancing girl press in 2018.
When she’s not teaching, writing, or combing over someone else’s writing, you’ll find her either commuting in a semi-frantic state or with a book, yoga mat, or recipe app open in front of her.
She lives in Taipei. In denial of her underlying Ludditism, she resides with far fewer of her dogeared treasures than she would like, but with an abundance of black clothing.
pseudo-untraceable thoughts, recapitulations, ramblings, iterations, oddities—in verse.
immune to: large organic yellow onions,
splattering oil, and last night’s glass in toes—
she wafts with spices and waltzes in a stained grey skirt,
exhausting what’s left of air,
she’s a turmeric tongue, cayenne mind.
