Congratulations Arda

I know this place is a little heavy on the fiction at times, but for now please congratulate Arda Collins on her New Yorker poem, Not for Chopin.

Woo-hoo! Way to go, Arda, where'er ye may be.

I like that a lot.

Congrats! Go poets!

I feel a swelling of spirit, a sort of bliss about the world when I read a line like, "The golden evening takes flat, slow turns outside."

I have read this poem probably 20 times and I think it is a serious work of poetic art. I love it.

Obviously I am a huge Ardasan (Arda + partisan), but I believe I'd make the same assertion even if I weren't.

The plunge is a proud friend today.

Congrats -- one of your students from Iowa Young Writers lives two doors down from me -- still writing.

Hi Everyone,

I have not tuned in for a little while and just saw this today! Thanks for reading my poem, and for all of your thoughtful comments. Hope you are all doing well. I am in New York, so if you are ever passing through, I hope you will say hello!
