Jay Deshpande (’13) in Poets & Writers
Jay was honored for his first collection of poetry, Love the Stranger, published this year by YesYes Books.
We are particularly grateful that Jay mentioned Saltonstall in his interview: “Environmentally, I took great inspiration from a residency at the Saltonstall Arts Colony in upstate New York. A lot of unseen and necessary work happened there in the woods and on the trails.”
Thank you, and congratulations, Jay!
