"My proposed project for my time at Millay is to further work on my debut collection of poems. In it, I appropriate the titles of the original series of "Star Trek" from the 1960s. I chose the titles for their poetic beauty, such as "For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" and "Who Mourns for Adonais", but not out of any specific reference to the television program itself. However, when I arrive at Millay, I will have come directly from the University of Missouri's Greece Summer Seminars, where I will be studying literary translation and at work on the Polish National poet, Adam Mickiewicz's, "Crimean Sonnets". With hope, the two projects can cross-pollinate each other."
