Her recent work appears in Poetry, Los Angeles Review of Books Quarterly Journal, and Narrative Magazine.
Reviews
"Gunn's formal decisions enable a reader to feel and think with and through her...While embodiment is a through-line, her poems explore (and interweave) subjects that include race, gender, sexuality, history, nationhood, family, illness, cognition, pleasure, and shame. Gunn's is a poetics both carefully studied and wildly intuitive, a language of both pyrotechnics and searing flame."--Dora Malech
