How did you first come up with the idea for this work?
It’s my personal poetry anthology in which I selected poems from 6 published poetry books.
Does this publication relate to your work or teaching at FIT? If so, how?
Yes, even though we don’t teach literature and poetry in our department.
Is there other information we should know?
I write in Spanish and this year I would like to start translating myself. This will be an experiment.
