Her first book of poems, Small Arguments, was published in the fall of 2003 by Pedlar Press, and went on to win the 2004 ReLit Award for Poetry. Originally published by the author over a series of small handmade chapbooks, Pedlar Press made every attempt to remain true to the spirit of those original, beautiful handmade works.
