Tara Skurtu’s (Poetry ’13) poem “Tourniquet” is in the Kenyon Review, both online and in the March/April print issue! In addition, her first published translation appears in this same issue: “What’s one of your dead telling you” is a selection from renowned Romanian poet Radu Vancu’s book Rope in Bloom.
Both of these are part of this issue’s featured section, which highlights five poems from poets who were invited to the Poets in Transylvania International Poetry Festival last fall. Read more about those from the editor, here.
Congratulations, Tara! We continue to be proud of you and look forward to seeing more of your work!
