What are you working on?
I’ve just started a series of poems about mental illness and treatment I underwent this past year. I’m also attending residencies in to Yerevan and St. Petersburg this coming spring and am planning on writing about the Caucasus and post-Soviet region. I’m hoping to somehow bring these two ideas together.
