Good news abounds for Sara Rivera (poetry ’13)! Sara has three poems out in Origins: Issue 2, and her poem “baltic sea” was published with an audio recording and is live at DIALOGIST. She was also recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize for her poem “Winnowing,” published in 2013 by the Loft Anthology.
In addition, Sara is a talented visual artist, and she will be designing a poetry installation for the Paseo Taos fall arts festival! You also may have admired her work if you saw our Faculty Reading and Ha Jin Visiting Lecturer posters this year, which she designed.
