I'm the author of Proof of Forever, and the poetry collection Acquainted with the Cold, which won the 2012 Foreword Book of the Year Award's Gold Prize for Poetry. I'm also the co-founder of literary incubator Paper Lantern Lit. My poetry was anthologized in Best New Poets 2012, and appears in several journals. I live in Carroll Gardens with an extremely lovable husband and a very skinny orange tree. Follow me on instagram @ProofOfLex and twitter @Lexa_Hillyer !
