Matt in Romania for a State Department Poetry Program October 16-29, 2015
Matt was in Romania for programs in Bucharest, Craiova, and Drobeta Turnu Severin, working with high school and college students on poetry writing and performance, leading to a poetry slam at the end of each city’s visit. This is the 4th State Department program he’s run, though he’s been lucky to have had help the previous 2 trips by some amazing poets, coaches, and organizers.
