I’m beyond grateful to the Arts Council of Ireland for a Travel and Training Award which will allow me to spend 2 weeks this month on the island of Thasos in Greece, studying poetry with the amazing Aimee Nezhukumatathil.

Greece is a country that’s very close to my heart–I spent some time on the island of Kefalonia last year, and having minored in Ancient Classics in my undergrad degree I am hoping to write a series of poems that reinterpret Greek myths and legends from a feminist and personal perspective.

Perhaps that’s easier said than done. For now, here’s a poem of Aimee’s from the Poetry Foundation.
