I am a poet.   Most recently I have published poetry in The New Yorker, Tin House, and The Paris Review.     Here and there, I've written prose features for the New York Times and New York magazine.  

In January 2014, my eponymous chapbook was published by the artist Jason Dodge and his press, 500 Places.  

I'd love to hear from you, if you want to write me:  mcdonald.anna@gmail.com.
