She wrote and published two collections of poetry: The Livelihood of Crows (Mayapple Press, 2010) and Forms of Intercession (Mayapple Press, 2008), and one novel, Tomato Girl (Algonquin, 2008), which was called a "wrenching, stunning, and pitch-perfect novel that captures the best of Southern literature's finest storytelling colors'' by Library Journal and "an absorbing, unsettling debut" by Publishers Weekly.

Pupek's work has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies and has received multiple nominations for the Pushcart Prize. Tomato Girl was also published as an audiobook by Recorded Books as part of their Southern Voices Audio Imprint.
