I gained crucial career advice from respected editors and have also maintained a good relationship with the magazine over the past year by doing freelance research and publishing translations in their issues.

  • With scholarship funding, I was able to pursue my passion for writing poetry by studying with some of the most well-known contemporary poets. I was given the time and the space that I needed to dedicate my energy to writing and to share ideas about poetry with my tutors and peers. I also became fluent in writing academically about poetry, writing mostly about experimental and documentary poetry, as well as its relation to photography.
