There’s only two days left to enter both the luso scholarships and the literary prize! For some motivation/inspiration/general wisdom, check out Oona Patrick’s Town Crier piece about Disquiet’s Luso scholarships, the North American Luso writing community, Presence/Presença, Fidalgo Books, and the upcoming AWP conference.
Oona also has an essay on “Portuguese contributions to, and representation in, North American literature” in the upcoming Spring, 2014, issue of The Puritan. Can’t wait!
“Last June, I disembarked from an early morning Portuguese airplane. Two hours and a trip through customs later, my feet hit the cobblestoned streets of Lisbon, Portugal. Temporal and spatial regularities ceased to exist; the city seemed timeless, the air felt, oddly, both British and Spanish at the same time.
I had arrived.”
