Hi, I'm melanie. 

 I live in Philadelphia.

But, I've lived a lot of different places, actually. Everywhere I go, I feel like I am looking for something that feels like "home"; like I am licking my finger, raising it above my head, and waiting to feel the way the wind catches.

In my heart, I will always be a poet, and at my best, I see poetry inside of everything. 

I have a small book of poems out with dancing girl press called things we have in writing POEMS for (Z). And you can listen to my EP SOUND/Voice here. I hold an MFA in Writing from California College of the Arts.
