Andrea’s poem “First Snow,” which initially appeared in Spillway 22, has won a Pushcart Prize for poetry and will be featured in the annual Pushcart Prize Anthology: Best of the Small Presses, published in October 2015.

New poems by Andrea appear or are forthcoming in The Georgia Review, Cloudbank, Spillway, Hubbub, Timberline Review, New Ohio Review, and Rhino.

A very insightful essay-review by Judith Kitchen appears in the Summer 2014 issue of The Georgia Review. In it, Kitchen focuses on four recent poetry collections, including Andrea’s 2013 collection, Landscape with Female Figure: New & Selected Poems, 1982 - 2012, which was named a Finalist for the 2014 Oregon Book Award in Poetry.
