Tara Skurtu (poetry ’13) writes to us from Bucharest, Romania. She’s just had a poem, “Richter Scale” (incidentally, about Bucharest) published in The Common! Tara also had the opportunity to read at an international poetry festival, “Poezia e la Bistrita” in Bistrita, Romania. Check out the poster below.
Congratulations, Tara, and best wishes for the remainder of your trip!
