We’re excited to share that Tara Skurtu’s (Poetry ’13) poem “Tourniquet” was the Poetry Daily poem of the day for World Poetry Day! The poem originally appeared in the March/April ’16 Kenyon Review.
In addition, Tara was January’s featured speaker for the Bucharest chapter of the international CreativeMornings monthly breakfast lecture series. The theme was language, and she spoke about poetry.
You can see Tara’s talk here.
