Somehow forgot to toot the horn about this, but found out 3 weeks ago that I was the first choice for the Roth Residency in Poetry at Bucknell University! I got to choose between either fall or spring semester during the 2014-2015 academic year and opted for spring.
They won't be offering an office this year, but will be offering a larger stipend. And I'll get the whole downstairs of the Poet's Cottage (2 bedrooms + scary basement) to myself! I'll likely set up an office in one of the bedrooms and make the rest of the house into a pup maze for Beckett.
I feel so honored! Thank you so much to everyone at the Stadler Center--Shara, Andy, Katie, Carolina, and the hard-working interns.
It's such a gift to not have to work next spring and just work on a new manuscript ...
