A few things! Congratulations, Kristen Gunther, first for winning the University of Wyoming’s Ellbogen Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. That’s the university highest honor for graduate students who teach. Wonderful news. You know, an MFA student won that last year, too. Way cool.
Also: Kristen, as she puts it, “recently recorded a handful of poems for Wyoming Public Radio. They’re going to start running in broadcasts of Open Spaces starting late this month. Wyoming public poems! All about landscape, ecology, and being bewildered by those things. Hopefully people like hearing them…we’ll see.” I’m certain they’ll be enjoyed, and bewildered, too.
