- Two publications came online! My poem in Rattle and my book review in The Adroit Journal.
- I was awarded an Academy of American Poets Prize!
- I began my final semester of graduate school. (jinkies!)
In less pleasant news, my health has worsened. I have had a series of appointments and have finally confirmed a surgery date for the first week of March. This is both terrifying and a relief, and I'm trying not to think about it too much as I head towards my thesis defense at the end of this month. This year is already such a rollercoaster!
On Tuesday, however, I received word that I had been accepted to The Kenyon Review Writers Workshop this summer! This was a much needed bright spot, as I've been needing something to look forward to other with my surgery looming in the future. I am thrilled about this opportunity and I think it will do me a lot of good. In bracing myself for the significant dent my surgery will have on my savings, I put together my first ever GoFundMe campaign to help ease the cost of my workshop tuition this summer. If you're at all interested/have a couple bucks to spare, you can find out more here!
And now, pictures!
