About Nicole


I’m a writer, educator, and editor. I am originally from Michigan but have lived in Colorado for more than 25 years.

I serve as a senior instructor for the English Department at the University of Colorado Denver. I also work as a consulting editor for nonfiction at Copper Nickel. 

My creative writing has been featured in Longreads, Hippocampus Magazine, Literary Mama, Gertrude Press, and the Brevity blog.

I am a third-year MFA candidate in creative nonfiction at Colorado State University and am currently at work on a collection of essays about queerness, grief, and the growing up in the Midwest.
