I know I don't write non-poetry stuff here very often, but I just had to shout about this -- I got into the Ph.D. program at Drew University, plus a full tuition scholarship, plus extra funds. I'm going to be studying the post-war female poets, Plath, Sexton, Bishop, etc. and gender studies.

I am just so shocked. So ecstatic-- so .... wow.

You who wrote my recommendations are going to get personal thanks very soon.

Oh my God, congratulations! I am jealous, so jealous, of what you will be studying. Good luck!

Michael said...

Fantastic! You deserve it!

Christine said...

Rose -- thanks!

ivy -- maybe I'm a little star. You're the star!!

Amanda -- I made YOU jealous? surprising! You are so accomplished. I will get back to you about Bennington, but I want you to know I didn't attend the school itself, just stayed in their dorms and took summer workshops taught by people not affliated with the school.

Michael -- thanks so much!
