Mid-Week Field Notes–July 27, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  • My poem, “Ancestor Manifesto,” appears on the Amherst Writers & Artists website, a result of the organization’s Write Around the World social justice fundraiser in May.
  • The Poetica website announced the winners of the 2022 Miriam Rachimi Microchapbook Prize. My ten-poem manuscript, Miss Emma Lazarus Enlightens the World, won first place! I began researching Lazarus in the early years of the new millennium and workshopped these poems at the Hudson Valley Writing Center eight years ago. I whittled my manuscript to ten poems and submitted. So glad I did!
  • Almost time to begin writing syllabi and uploading materials to learning management systems for the four classes I’ll be teaching in the fall: English Comp II and US History I at Mercer County Community College and Genocide & Human Rights and America & the Holocaust at The College of New Jersey.
  • I’m featured as one of the graduating PhD students at Gratz College. Two of my committee members have approved my dissertation. Still waiting for the other two. My defense has not yet been scheduled, but graduation is August 28.

Have a good week, everybody!
