Tara Skurtu publishes translations of Romanian poetry

For the June issue of PlumeTara Skurtu (Poetry ’13) worked on a contemporary poetry feature with writer and translator MARGENTO.  Tara and MARGENTO each chose five poets to introduce and translate for the issue.  We’re proud to say that Tara originally went to Romania on her Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship, where she fell in love with Romanian poetry, and has been teaching herself Romanian through contemporary poems.

Thanks, Tara, for sharing your work with us, and congrats!
