Sandee is a New York born and raised logophile, writer, and globetrotter. She is a Phi Beta 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 completing her MA in Literary Linguistics through the University of Nottingham with a focus on Cognitive Poetics and trauma narratives.
Her most recent writing can be found in The News Lens. Her poetry can be found printed in Phoenix, Promethean, Sonder Quarterly, and Beechwood Review—among other online publications. Her debut chapbook, devis(h)er, was released by dancing girl press in December 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 micro- tabbed browser window open in front of her.
She is currently in Taipei, where she has co-founded Taipei Poetry Collective. 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.
