My poetry has been translated into Ukrainian, Hungarian, Arabic and Galician. She has received awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the National Theater Translation Fund, and others. As a founding member of Yara Arts Group I have collaborated on numerous theatrical productions presented in Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Siberia, and at La MaMa, E.T.C. in NYC. I curated reading series at the Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church and written about the arts for Time Out New York, Paper Magazine, and About.com.
