Orion is beyond honored to announce that our poetry editor @aimee_nezhukumatathil
has just been named a 2020 Guggenheim Fellow in poetry. 🎉🍾🎊. So well-deserved!
“I believe in poetry. I believe it can elevate you for even just a brief moment—not to forget the horror surrounding us (it’s there, it’s there. I can’t pretend it’s not)—but it can alter how we see the world, how we see each other. I have faith that we will be able to touch each other and break bread together at the same table again soon. Maybe not as soon as I’d like, but soon.”
