I was so honoured to present to the young women of Qatar University. To see so many young people devoted to poetry made me so very hopeful for the discipline. How wonderful to think that words matter so much to so many. I will never forget the experience. Two hours simply flew by! Thank you so much to the university for hosting me.
And thanks to the wonderful students of the American School of Doha who hosted me for two days of writers’ workshops. I so enjoyed working with you and hearing your words. A special hug of thanks to Janice Rolfe-Sage and Qatar Reads for hosting me this entire week!
