She received her MFA from New York University.

 

R E D is now available for purchase from Birds, LLC!

R E D excavates from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, through the process of erasure, an original narrative of violence, sexual abuse, power dynamics, vengeance, and feminist rage, and wrestles with the complexities of gender, transition, and monsterhood.

 

Reviews of R E D

"In Berggrun’s striking debut, a book-length erasure of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, that text becomes fertile soil for cultivating complex story of sexual awakening, domestic abuse, and liberation." — Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)

"This is a major win for the publisher, the author, and poetry at large. Any other title vying for best book of the year has formidable competition." — Lønely Christopher
