I'm pleased to announce that I've been invited to write a second essay for the Mezzo Cammin Women Poets Timeline Project. I've accepted, and have already begun my research on another Uruguayan poet, Delmira Agustini. Agustini was a personal friend of María Eugenia Vaz Ferreira, the subject of my first essay.
This poetry blog is named for one of Agustini's poems, "La barca milagrosa" (my English translation on a separate page).
I'm hoping to finish it in time for the 2014 West Chester Poetry Conference, celebrating its 20th anniversary.
