anyone read some good poem lately?

I've been digging back into the work of Czeslaw Milosz, who is a particular fave of mine. 

Also, I bought Ocean Vuong's Night Sky with Exit Wounds at a Planned Parenthood used book sale in the fall, and just now got around to reading it. It's AMAZING.

I'm also a huge fan of Chen Chen. These three are probably my favorites of his:

Poplar Street: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/58154/poplar-street

Poem in Noisy Mouthfuls: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/143242/poem-in-noisy-mouthfuls

I'm Not A Religious Person But https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/58152/im-not-a-religious-person-but

Also recommend signing up for the poets.org Poem-A-Day thing--sends one poem every morning to your email!

Yeahhh but I am not so jealous of how most have to apply separately to work in particular labs first, and then apply to the program!

Anyone been like tracking most likely times to get contact? Lol 

I feel like the earliest I’ve gotten was after 10am,  I got an email at 4am once, and several in the evening/night, after standard working hours.

Lol don't ruin my pity party with your science sympathizing and, you know, facts ?

This is some next level shit, and I respect it.

 

Also that new WashU acceptance made my heart stop for a second thinking it was UW, which I shouldn't hear from for like a month.

I think you're one of the few of us that has this much information to track! A note on late emails--If it's a form email that automatically goes out when something is submitted in a system, then that might be why it was sent after standard working hours. At the university I work at, a lot of emails go out at after midnight when the system refreshes.

Anyone else apply to WUSTL? Seems a little too early for people to be hearing results since apps were due on 7th--or is that just me trying to rationalize away the reality of another implied rejection?  ?

I also applied to WUSTL (and Rice) and haven't heard from either. My mom asked if she should call to let them know how wonderful I am, but I'll leave that as a last resort.

Guys! Literally the wildest thing just happened. I’m literally tipsy at a Denny’s rn and my server is an MA student at UCSB...we get talking and turns out she knows both of my POIs and one of them is her advisor! Crazy but she said she’d put in a good word for me!

Ohhhh that's good to know! Thanks for the inside knowledge ? Do you happen to know through which medium they prefer to contact us about decisions (email, phone, portal, etc)?

I received a personalized e-mail from the DGS (no phone calls for me, but it's probably because I am an international applicant).

@SomeoneAcceptMe Hi, long-time lurker here! To echo what @Warelin said, I received notification yesterday afternoon via phone (I was told I would receive an official acceptance email from DGS within the next couple days). I'm also a domestic applicant. It seems like last year they notified students well into early February, so don't lose hope. Best of luck!!!

I'll look forward to (hopefully) meeting you. I like your interests. :)

I don't know whether this is the place to say as much, but: I think I have a paper accepted to the 2019 Digital Humanities conference in Ultrecht, Nederlands! I say think because while it has yet to be officially accepted, the blind jury gave it an almost perfect score, and apparently—so says my supervisor—the score dictates participation... Very pleased, this Saturday afternoon, especially since the wait period for PhD acceptances has been brutal thus far!

Congratulations! That's very exciting!
