I've got one of my favorite co-translations in this cool anthology. Nights at the Calcutta CafĂ© is a result of an enriching collaboration between poets from Calcutta, Montreal, and Norfolk, VA originally curated in memory of a beloved, erstwhile Indian restaurant near Columbia University. Cheers to my fellow writers and editors Peter Schulman and Somrita Urni Ganguly.

This month I'm honored to have been included in Creature Conserve's Mentorship Spotlight , which focused on my work around Dragon Run on Virginia's Middle Peninsula. Their Mentorship Program has been a wonderful experience. With the guidance and support of the attentive leadership team and my thoughtful mentor, Ching-In Chen, I have been able to make significant progress on my series of eco-poems and accompanying soundscapes.
