Queen for a Day

I'm thrilled to be the featured poet today at Poetry Daily! Please pay me a visit. The poem is "Seventh-Grade Science Project." It appears in the current issue of the Harvard Review.

As if that weren't enough excitement for one day, I'm now up in Kingston, NY, where I have come in order to take an all-day poetry workshop with Dorianne Laux and Joseph Millar. I haven't taken a workshop in a long time, but jumped at the opportunity to spend time with these two poets. One benefit of being in the workshop is that it will prevent me from sitting around all day staring at myself on Poetry Daily. And I hope to return home with some new poems underway. Details coming soon.

  2. What an amazing poem, Diane--I have wanted for years to write a poem about what it takes to get an 'A' in science. Congratulations on landing it on PD. I am thrilled for you!

    all hail.

    after many years in 7th grade, I can say that you were not alone in pulling apart beautiful things, running wild and trying to preserve things

  8. Thank you all for your beautiful, heart-warming comments. Tomorrow my head will be back to its normal size, crown removed.
