Tara Skurtu (poetry ’13) writes to us from Bucharest, Romania. She’s just had two poems, “Richter Scale” (incidentally, about Bucharest) and “Bar Poem” 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!
